Nov 27, 2015 | News

(27 November 2015) – As a direct follow-up to the 2015 Annual Colloquium on Fundamental Rights, the European Commission publishes today a call for proposals under the Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme.

The Commission will award €5.4 million to projects on: training and capacity building to strengthen criminal responses to hate crime and hate speech; exchanging best practices to prevent and combat all forms of intolerance; empowering and supporting victims of hate crime and hate speech.

As a result of last year’s call for proposals, financial support has been awarded to a number of projects including “Research, Report, Remove” and “eMORE”, which both focus on monitoring, mapping and the removal of online hate speech.

The deadline for submitting proposals is 18 February 2016.
