The global objective of this call for proposals is to support representative democracy and political pluralism through the bolstering of political parties, in line with a multiparty, non-partisan approach.
This will be achieved by supporting adequate and active political participation of women – and especially young women – and by improving the legal and policy framework of the party-system in the beneficiary countries.
This call has two lots:
Lot 1: Participation of women – and especially young women – in political parties
To empower young women to take an active role in the life of the parties (including in their policy-making and decision-making structures) and in political affairs in general, at both national and local levels, including increasing the percentage of young female members and female decision makers/leaders in political parties.
Lot 2: Party-systems
To support inter-party dialogues on the legal, financial and/or policy framework affecting political parties and political party financing, and/or
To support political parties in improving their governance, transparency, accountability and outreach to citizens (particularly women and youth), both at national and local levels.
