The main global strategic themes of the fund are; democratic values and the rule of law, the rules-based international order and human rights for a stable world.
Proposals will be accepted from civil society, commercial organisations, governments, think tanks and international organisations. Please note that we are looking for small to medium-sized projects. The activity must be carried out by end of March 2019.
As we have made clear in our annual human rights report, two of our major priorities with regards to human rights in the OPTs are Gaza and minors in detention. We would welcome projects on these issues:
Gaza. The UK government remains extremely concerned by the situation in Gaza. We would welcome project proposals which aim to improve the socio-economic situation in Gaza, in particular, projects which aim to work with the Israeli authorities to improve movement and access.
Minors in detention. We also continue to have concerns about some aspects of the treatment of Palestinian minors in detention. We would welcome project proposals which aim to work with the Israeli authorities to address these concerns, focused on practical, pragmatic improvements to process and policy.
Shortlisted applicants will be asked to submit a full activity based budget (in Excel). Because of the high expected volume of responses, the Embassy will only be able to follow up with short-listed applicants.
