For European remembrance, the call will support projects that commemorate, research and educate about defining experiences in modern European history. These include the causes and consequences of authoritarian and totalitarian regimes, resistance against these regimes, the Holocaust and other mass crimes, democratic transition and (re)-building democratic institutions, the legacy of colonialism, transnational migration and European integration.
Supporting projects aimed at commemorating defining events in modern European history, including the causes and consequences of authoritarian and totalitarian regimes, and at raising awareness among European citizens, of their common history, culture, cultural heritage and values, thereby enhancing their understanding of the Union, its origins, purpose, diversity and achievements and of the importance of mutual understanding and tolerance.
European Remembrance is fundamentally linked to the realisation and protection of EU values and rights today. The European experience of the 20th century, including totalitarian and authoritarian regimes and their crimes, as well as the democratic transition based on the rule of law, migration, de-colonisation and European integration all contribute to encouraging Europeans to be vigilant and to defend fundamental rights, democracy and the rule of law particularly the rights of minorities. Across the different priorities, an overarching aim is to highlight the role, representation and perspective of women in these important historical events and developments to allow a more gender-balanced and gender-sensitive understanding of history. Projects can be national or transnational. Transnational projects are particularly encouraged.
Projects must address one or several of the following policy priorities:
1. Democratic transition, (re-)building and strengthening society based on the rule of law, democracy and fundamental rights
Europe’s 20th century experience shows the fragility of democracy and the continuous need for people to engage and defend democratic institutions and values. Historical experience such as in the 1920s and 1930s, when newly established democracies declined due to internal or external attacks, are stark reminders of this vulnerability. Today’s achievements come again under pressure with rising populism, extremism and societal divisions. Equally, the democratic transition from authoritarian or totalitarian rule needed the (re-)building of democratic institutions based on the rule of law, which protect fundamental rights for all members of society, such as the period after WWII and post-1989. The EU is a community of values and all its Member States are based on these values. While democratic transition and consolidation prepared the ground for democratic society, providing historical justice after the end of totalitarian and authoritarian regimes for victims and affected communities can contribute to a healing of society. Projects under this priority should focus on the transition from authoritarian and totalitarian rule to democracy in different European countries, their similarities and differences and the lessons retained for the future about how to defend and sustain EU values such as democracy, rule of law and fundamental rights. At the same time, projects can also explore the means of historical justice, be it through trials, restitution or amnesty.
2. Strengthening the remembrance of the Holocaust, genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity to reinforce democracy in the EU
3. Migration, de-colonisation and multicultural European societies
4. European integration and its defining achievements
