The priorities of this call for proposals are:
The primary priority is Transitional justice and peace-building, and the secondary priority is Mediation, dialogue and confidence building measures.
Despite the fact that neighbours have similar problems and the experience of one can easily be transferred to the other, the region has been characterised by the existence of limited interaction. Consequently, this call prioritises the regional cooperation and requires proposals to plan actions in, at least three of the five Western Balkans partners , with joint activities between civil society actors of the different territories.
Concerning targeted population groups, in addition to victims and their organisations emphasis will be given to work with women and youth.
