National, regional and local authorities, European-level networks and non-governmental organisations are eligible to participate in Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme. Bodies and entities which are profit-oriented shall have access to the Programme only in conjunction with non-profit or public organisations.

All Member States, Iceland and Serbia (all specific objectives) can participate in the Programme. Liechtenstein is participating in the “Promoting non-discrimination and equality” objectives (budget line 33 02 02).

  • Training activities (staff exchanges, workshops, development of training modules, etc.)
  • Mutual learning, cooperation activities, exchange of good practices, peer reviews, development of ICT tools, etc.
  • Awareness-raising activities, dissemination, conferences, etc.
  • Support for main actors (key European NGOs and networks, Member States' authorities implementing Union law, etc.)
  • Analytical activities (studies, data collection, development of common methodologies, indicators, surveys, preparation of guides, etc.)

All actions to be funded by the programme must produce results whose benefits go beyond one single Member State. The following elements should in particular be looked at: Does the project contribute to the effective, comprehensive and consistent implementation of Union law instruments and policies? Will it improve public awareness and knowledge about the rights, values and principles deriving from Union law? Will it improve the understanding of potential issues affecting these rights? 

Is it likely to develop mutual trust among Member States and to improve cross- border cooperation? What is its transnational impact? Does it contribute to the elaboration and dissemination of best practices? Will it create practical tools and solutions that address cross-border or Union-wide challenges?

The Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme contributes to the further development of an area where equality and the rights of persons, as enshrined in the Treaty, the Charter and international human rights conventions, are promoted, protected and effectively implemented. The budget for the programme is €439.5 million over the period 2014-2020. Its nine specific objectives are to:

  1. Promote non–discrimination
  2. Combat racism, xenophobia, homophobia and other forms of intolerance
  3. Promote rights of persons with disabilities
  4. Promote equality between women and men and gender mainstreaming
  5. Prevent violence against children, young people, women and other groups at risk (Daphne)
  6. Promote the rights of the child
  7. Ensure the highest level of data protection
  8. Promote the rights deriving from Union citizenship
  9. Enforce consumer rights
