Planning Workshop for EU Project on Human Rights

(12.03.2015) On 05 and 06 March, a planning workshop for an EU project on Human Rights was organized in Copenhagen with the Danish Institute for Human Rights (DIHR) and facilitated by Ralph Griese and Stefanie Kolodziej (finep). In collaboration with staff from DIHR, relevant questions on project and budget design of the planned project were discussed, specific project activities with a corresponding logframe refined and the governance and partner structure assessed. Furthermore, administrative and financial questions on the application process and project management related to the specific conditions set by the European Commission were clarified with the support of finep.

finep is currently supporting the DIHR in the application process for a project that is financed by the European Commission (European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights). The project's objective is to strengthen the capacities of National Human Rights Institutions and the cooperation with their regional and international networks in promoting and protecting human rights, in particular on human rights and business, and economic, social and cultural rights.
