The Call for Applications for 2011-2012 will accept project applications from eligible applicants aimed at implementing recommendations made by the Subcommittee on Prevention of Torture after a visit to a State party, provided these recommendations are contained in a report that has become public by the request of the State party. Applicants may request grants of up to US$ 20,000 for project applications implemented between 1 January 2012 to 31 December 2012.
For 2011-2012, four thematic priorities have been established:
  •  Notifications of fundamental rights to detainees in a language which they can understand
  • Improving recreational and/or vocational activities for juveniles in detention
  • Basic training programmes for detention personnel (with the inclusion of a focus on health care)
  • Any other specific recommendation in the visit reports that details a pressing and compelling need.
All applications must be submitted in English, French or Spanish. The final number of grants awarded will depend on the proposed budgets of selected project applications, as well as the financial resources of the Fund.
The Call for Applications 2011-2012 will close on 30 November 2011 at 24:00 CET.
