Call for proposals 2019 - Capacity building for litigating cases relating to democracy, rule of law and fundamental rights violations JUST-PPPA-LITI-AG-2018 Closed!


The Commission is implementing a preparatory action to create an EU fund for awareness raising and legal assistance to individuals and civil society organisations litigating democracy, rule of law and fundamental rights violations.

  • the development of practical learning tools and initiatives to increase the availability and uptake of specialised knowledge (e.g. thematic databases of jurisprudence);
  • the development and delivery of training and train the trainers modules for legal professionals (such as experts, lawyers and legal advisers) and practitioners;
  • the exchange of good practices, knowledge and skills, and mutual learning activities, including through the development of strategic partnerships and networks and awareness raising initiatives.
