for proposals to support awareness raising and information campaigns on
the risks of irregular migration in selected third-countries” –
Objective and description
new topic has been opened for submission of proposals under the Asylum,
Migration and Integration Fund within the “Call for proposals to
support awareness raising and information campaigns on the risks of
irregular migration in selected third-countries” – AMIF-2017-AG-INFO.
The Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund aims at supporting
actions to contribute to the efficient management of migration flows
and the implementation, strengthening and development of a common Union
approach to asylum and immigration.
The present Call for Proposals aims at funding projects of information
and awareness-raising campaigns in the area of migration in Algeria,
The Gambia, Guinea Conakry, Ivory Coast, Niger, Mali, Morocco, Senegal
or Tunisia, aiming at preventing irregular migration and, in particular, migrant smuggling and trafficking of human beings.
The general objective
of the present Call for Proposal is to contribute to the change of
perceptions and behaviour of third country nationals pondering
irregularly migrating to the EU and key influencers of their decisions.
The goal of this Call for Proposals is to support projects that pursue the following specific objectives:
provide trusted, factual, balanced information on the risks of
irregular migration – during the journey (dangers of migrating
irregularly) and after arrival (hardship of living in the EU irregularly
and return), as well as on relevant legal alternatives of migration and
on economic opportunities of staying in the country of origin;
empower credible voices in countering migrant smugglers' narratives on
irregular migration and the diasporas' narratives on living irregularly
in the EU;
strengthen multi-stakeholder cooperation between actors such as civil
society organisations, researchers, media outlets, local state actors,
diaspora and where relevant other stakeholders;
- to enhance the sustainability of communication activities and results of the campaign.
proposals submitted under the present Call for Proposals should build
on the lessons learnt from the past and on-going information and
awareness-raising campaigns and activities, including those implemented
by the EU, Member States and International Organisations in third
countries. The projects should seek synergies with communication
activities being implemented under actions funded by the EU, like the
relevant projects co-funded by AMIF, and projects funded by the EU Trust
Fund for Africa, as well as, where relevant, with those implemented by
EU Member States, International Organizations and other partners.
Project proposals should consist of the following key elements:
· Preparatory research, in
view of developing a tailored communication strategy, in particular to
identify target audience(s) of the communication activities, its(their)
characteristics, motivations, information needs and gaps as well as
media access and consumption, as to design the most effective approach
to influence its(their) behaviour;
· A tailored communication strategy based on the outcome of the preparatory research;
· The production and implementation of the communication campaign;
· Monitoring and evaluation of the results and impact of the campaign;
· A strategy for the sustainability of the campaign activities.
Applicants and co-applicants must be legal persons established in an EU Member State, with the exception of Denmark.
In order to be eligible for a grant, applications must be:
· submitted by a Consortium between at least two entities;
· covering a single third country (Algeria, The Gambia, Guinea Conakry, Ivory Coast, Niger, Mali, Morocco, Senegal or Tunisia).
The total budget earmarked for the co-financing of projects is estimated at EUR 4,500,000.
The EU grant is limited to a co-funding rate of 90% of the total eligible costs of the action.
Projects cannot be scheduled to last more than 18 months.
Projects must be seeking EU co-funding equal to or more than EUR 500,000 and equal to or less than EUR 1,000,000.
