Details

The Magna Carta Fund for Human Rights and Democracy (MCFHRD) is the FCO’s dedicated strategic fund supporting our global human rights and democracy work. Through targeted projects, it aims to further British interests overseas by tackling the root causes of human rights violations, strengthening institutions and governance, promoting and protecting human rights, and supporting democracy and the rule of law.

The Magna Carta Fund for Human Rights and Democracy (MCFHRD) is a strategic programme; we therefore assess every bid we receive carefully for impact and fit with both the overarching MCFHRD strategy, and the UK objectives for that country.

We are pleased to invite project concepts for 2016-17 funding for the following thematic areas:

• Democratic values and the rule of law - Uphold universal rights, democracy and the rule of law as key building blocks for more secure and prosperous societies

• The rules-based international order - Support an effective rules-based international order that stands up for universal rights

• Human rights for a stable world - Promote a more stable world by upholding universal rights in tackling conflict and extremism

Eligibility

The MCFHRD accepts project bids from civil society, commercial organisations, governments, think tanks, other UK government departments and international organisations. We encourage our Embassies and High Commissions to work closely with both local and international implementers, in order to identify potential projects that are of the greatest relevance to the UK’s human rights focus for that country.

Timings

Projects should begin at any time from May 2016 and must be completed by the end of March 2017. Submission: Project concepts must be submitted electronically to [bhc.yaounde@fco.gov.uk] indicating “MCFHRD Concept Bid” in the subject field.
