A Comprehensive Support to Human Rights Defenders in Turkey program has been funded by the European Union. The project aims to protect human rights defenders at risk and to support human rights defender organizations in Turkey. The project will give priority to those who are working in the most difficult situations such as remote areas and small cities, those who are specifically targeted for their area of human rights work and those who face obstacles to access funding to maintain their work including women HRDs, LGBTI HRDs, journalists and bloggers, and those denouncing the use of torture or working with survivors of torture.
Human rights defenders are invited to submit their proposals. The call for applications will remain open and ProtectDefenders.eu will welcome applications on a rolling basis.
