European Commission Call for Proposals
The European Commission has recently released a call for proposals, in regard to a thematic programme of cooperation with third countries in the areas of migration and asylum.
In terms of geographical scope, all third countries covered by the European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument (ENPI), the Development Cooperation Instrument (DCI) and the European Development Fund (EDF) may be eligible for the thematic programme.
Although the main subject is migration to the European Union, attention will be paid to all countries and regions confronted with important South-South migratory flows and the challenges posed by such movements.
The present call for proposals will be structured in a way which distinguishes the following regions:
- The South: Southern Mediterranean (Northern Africa), Sub-Saharan Africa and Middle East
- The East: Eastern Europe, (including the Southern Caucuses) and Central Asia
- Other regions: (South, Southeast and East Asia, Pacific, Latin America and Caribbean)
The deadline for submission of concept notes is 01 December 2011, 16:00 Brussels date and time. For more information, including eligibility requirements, funding amounts, and priority regions, please click here.
