Call for Proposals: European Remembrance

Citizens, Equality, Rights and Values Programme (CERV), European Remembrance; Deadline - 6 June 2024

This is a call for proposals for EU action grants in the field of European Remembrance under the Citizens, Equality, Rights and Value Programme (CERV).

Objectives: Supporting projects aimed at commemorating defining events in modern European history, including the causes and consequences of authoritarian and totalitarian regimes, and at raising awareness among European citizens, of their common history, culture, cultural heritage, and values, thereby enhancing their understanding of the Union, its origins, purpose, diversity, and achievements and of the importance of mutual understanding and tolerance.

European Remembrance is fundamentally linked to the realisation and protection of EU values and rights today. The European experience of the 20th century, including totalitarian and authoritarian regimes and their crimes, as well as the democratic transition based on the rule of law, migration, de-colonisation, and European integration all contribute to encouraging Europeans to be vigilant and to defend fundamental rights, democracy and the rule of law particularly the rights of minorities. Proposals are encouraged to serve the implementation of EU policies and more precisely to serve the implementations of actions included in the EU Strategy on combating antisemitism and fostering Jewish life 2021-2030, EU anti-racism action plan for 2020-2025, EU Roma strategic framework on equality, inclusion and participation, and No place for hate: a Europe united against hatred.

Across the different priorities, an overarching aim is to promote a more nuanced understanding of historic events by integrating a gender perspective when examining them. Looking through a gender-lens at history can highlight the role, representation and perspective of groups and individuals of all gender and promote a more holistic and gender-sensitive understanding of history. To this end, applicants are advised to explain in their proposals from whose perspective history is narrated, whose experiences are attributed importance and whose experiences are omitted. Applicants are also advised to ensure meaningful participation of their target groups, taking into account gender differences and to ensure that they present measures to avoid the reproduction of stereotypes and prejudices in their proposals. Projects can be national or transnational. Transnational projects are particularly encouraged.

The call covers the following topics representing 4 call priorities:

− CERV-2024-CITIZENS-REM-TRANSITION (Topic 1): Democratic transition, (re-)building and strengthening society based on the rule of law, democracy and fundamental rights
− CERV-2024-CITIZENS-REM-HOLOCAUST (Topic 2): Strengthening the remembrance of the Holocaust, genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity to reinforce democracy in the EU
− CERV-2024-CITIZENS-REM-HISTMIGRATION (Topic 3): Migration, de-colonisation and multicultural European societies
− CERV-2024-CITIZENS-REM-EUINTEGRATION (Topic 4): European integration and its defining achievements

Each project application under the call must address only one of these topics. Applicants wishing to apply for more than one topic, must submit a separate proposal under each topic.

Call opening: 5 March 2024
Deadline for submission: 6 June 2024, 17:00 CET
