(ANSAmed) - BRUSSELS, FEBRUARY 20 - The European Commission has published a call for proposals under the EU Partnership for Peace Programme in the Middle east for an amount of 5 million euros, aiming to support practical actions aiming at building mutual trust, building capacity for conflict resolution, launching joint development initiatives, and empowering marginalized groups. According to the Enpi website (www.enpi-info.eu), the global objective of the call is to help support the conditions for a negotiated solution and provide a solid foundation at civil society and intergovernmental level for a just and lasting peace in the Middle East. The programme aim to strengthen and increase direct civil society relationships and inter-agency/intergovernmental co-operation based on equality and reciprocity between communities affected by the conflict (Palestinians and Israelis, including the Arab minority in Israel, and neighbouring Arabs).Under this Call, proposals must address at least one of the three priorities: Cross community cooperation, with joint concrete actions for socio-economic development; peace building education, with communication and confidence building; awareness raising of leaders and opinion-formers, public opinion and media through increased involvement of women in the peace and security sphere. All actions, regardless of the priority, must be implemented in the Palestinian Territories and/or Israel (international recognised borders) and/or Jordan. Specific activities, within the scope of the action and if duly justified, can be implemented also in EU Members States, Europe at large as well as in the ENPI South countries.

The deadline for application is 23 April 2012. Next information session for applicants will take place in Tel Aviv on 28 February. (ANSAmed)
