Type of project: CSOs facing new restrictions on their work can apply for funding for emergency advocacy actions to defend civic freedoms and democratic values. The Fund provides grants to mobilise quick, principled and effective advocacy responses to events that threaten fundamental rights to associate and assemble freely. The fund also supports civil society through resiliency grants, designed to ensure that organisations have greater flexibility and creativity to proactively prevent and mitigate threats against their organizations. Funds are provided where immediate action is required, either to forestall imminent threats or to address new restrictions.
