The Kingdom of Netherlands is seeking proposals for its MATRA 2022 Programme.

MATRA stands for maatschappelijke transformatie, meaning ‘social transformation’. It is part of the Netherlands Fund for Regional Partnerships (NFRP) that supports current and potential EU candidate countries and the countries of the Eastern Partnership in their attempts to fulfill conditions required by the EU accession processes (e.g. Copenhagen Criteria and/or Association Agreements with EU). The partnership supplements the European Commission’s efforts and aims to help countries on the fringes of the European Union to strengthen democracy and the rule of law, thus enhance stability.

The aim is to increase accountability and transparency of BiH authorities, influence policies and legislation, and/or monitor their implementation in the fields mention in the offer, including: Freedom of expression and independent media, including a safe working environment for journalists in traditional and digital media.
