Feasibility study : litigating cases relating to violations of democracy, rule of law and fundamental rights

Deadline:

EX ANTE PUBLICITY FOR NEGOTIATED PROCEDURE FOR LOW VALUE CONTRATS - Feasibility study in the context of the implementation of a preparatory action on Union fund for financial support for litigating cases relating to violations of democracy, rule of law and fundamental rights.

The feasibility study will focus on possible needs and gaps in support of independent human rights actors involved in the enforcement of fundamental rights within the EU legal framework. It will inform the implementation of the preparatory action, having regard to its objectives and taking into account the EU legal framework as laid down in the Treaties, as well as the overall objective of ensuring that, in the fields covered by EU law, fundamental rights and freedoms as enshrined in the Charter are respected, and that individuals are granted effective legal protection to that effect. The study will provide an overview of the current obstacles facing individuals and civil society organisations wishing to exercise their rights regarding democracy, the rule of law and fundamental rights, in particular through litigation.
