The Czech Republic perceives the need to help the development of civil society and thus contribute to the spread of democracy, the rule of law and the protection of human rights. In this context, the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Nigeria is launching a call for proposals for Local  Transformation Project in its countries of competence.

Democracy, the rule of law and human rights are interdependent and mutually reinforcing pillars of human dignity. Promoting them and putting them into reality is an important priority goal of Czech foreign policy. As part of this goal, the Czech Republic promotes transition to democracy worldwide and shares its specific experience of social transformation and  democracy building. The call for local transformation projects is based on the Human Rights and Transition Promotion Policy Concept of the Czech Republic of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic.

The project must relate to one of the TRANS priority areas:

  1. Civil society, including human rights defenders;
  2. Freedom of expression and access to information, including media freedom;
  3. Equal political and public participation;
  4. Building rule of law institutions;
  5. Equality and non-discrimination;
  6. Protection of human rights in employment and environmental issues.
