  3. Select themes that you are interested in to implement projects.

    16 different thematic keywords were predefined when the database was set up. Each call is classified according to this system either with one, two or more themes to facilitate the search for suitable calls.

  4. You can use free text when searching for interesting calls. All you need to do is to enter a phrase in the text bar that EuroAccess is to look for in its database.

    When looking for a phrase in the free text bar, the system will perform an exact-match search. This means that it will search the database for the exact words, in their exact order. However, you can opt for two different approaches:

    1. You can use “AND”, in this way: One AND Two. EuroAccess will look in the database for the fields which records contain both One and Two, regardless of their order and their position in any sentence.

    2. You can use the “OR”, in this way: One OR Two. In this case, EuroAccess will search the database for fields that contain either the word One or the word Two. It will retrieve all the fields with one of these words or with both.

    However, you should prefer phrases or complex words over simple words in you text searches.

short description

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.

Call objectives

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.
Policy initiatives supported:

  • EU Strategy on combating antisemitism and fostering Jewish life 2021-2030
  • EU anti-racism action plan for 2020-2025
  • EU Roma strategic framework on equality, inclusion and participation.
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
Europe’s 20th century was marked by horrific crimes such as the Holocaust and crimes committed by authoritarian and totalitarian regimes. The legacy of these crimes requires continuous sharing and remembering as well as research to curb distortion. Education targeting all generations on the importance of safeguarding democracy and fundamental rights should draw on the lessons from these crimes. Young people should be empowered to become ambassadors of this memory, to recall the story of survivors both offline and online, to raise awareness about their tragedy and connect with memorial sites and museums. The testimonies of the witnesses of these crimes are particularly valuable in educating young people, especially since there are fewer and fewer of these witnesses. This also implies countering distortion, denial and trivialisation of the historical facts. In upholding EU values, the memory of these crimes, teaching about fundamental rights and the active engagement of people to learn from them are necessary, particularly for actors in the frontline of defending rights such as fundamental right-defenders, civil servants, members of the judiciary, law enforcement officials and policymakers. Moreover, suppressing fundamental rights such as freedom of speech, assembly, thought, conscience and religion is an integral characteristic of totalitarian and authoritarian regimes. Organised opposition and/or resistance from within society played a key role in fighting foreign occupation and/or overthrowing totalitarian and authoritarian regimes. It remains crucial to remember and educate actors and groups about these events as examples to defend fundamental rights for today and the future. Projects under this priority should focus on specific crimes such as the Holocaust, totalitarian crimes or other 20th century crimes like genocides, war crimes and crimes against humanity and should analyse how these crimes were organised, which actors were involved and how they were committed. Projects under this priority are encouraged to find new ways of remembering and educating about these crimes to protect society against resurging threats of hatred, discrimination, racism, antisemitism, antigypsyism and LGBTIQ-phobia. In line with the EU Strategy on combating antisemitism and fostering Jewish life, as well as the other key policy initiatives this priority supports, projects can focus in this regard on developing networks of Young European Ambassadors to promote remembrance. Young Europeans should learn how to access and share accurate information about the Holocaust, genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity, and should be empowered to act both online and in the physical world. Projects can focus on countering Holocaust distortion, trivialization and denial as well as digitalising historical material and testimonies of witnesses for education and training purposes. These projects are encouraged to work as well with young people, together with other generations, in order to transmit the memory of events. Additionally, projects under this priority can also analyse and highlight resistance and/or organised opposition to totalitarian rule.

3. Migration, de-colonisation and multicultural European societies
Migration, colonialism, slavery and imperialism are embedded in the European history and all have profound consequences for society today. Migration has a long and varied history in Europe, but is often treated solely as a present- day phenomenon. However, population movements in Europe, from economic migration to expulsion and deportation, from fleeing violence and persecution to migration after EU accession have marked recent European history. Migration is multi-faceted and the experiences of migration into, out of or within Europe are lessons for future generations. Forced migration, internal displacement and expulsion is an experience shared by many Europeans during the period of war, as visible again due to the Russian aggression against Ukraine. Colonialism, slavery and imperialism have left a mark on global history. Prejudices and stereotypes can be addressed by acknowledging the historical roots of racism, including from an intersectional perspective. De-colonisation, the dismantlement of colonial empires particularly in the 20th century and the emerging post-colonial European societies are shaped by this experience until today. While for many, colonialism is considered a chapter in history, the consequences of imperialistic rule inside and outside Europe are felt still today and are intertwined with structural racism and discrimination. However, these debates have been absent for far too long and need to be firmly embedded in a European narrative. Ensuring remembrance is an important part of encouraging inclusion and understanding. Projects under this priority should explore the legacy of colonialism, inside and outside Europe, and its impact on contemporary multicultural European societies. Topics such as discrimination and racism are still linked with these experiences and play a major role in European memory throughout most of EU’s societies. Projects under this priority can also deal with common European experiences of migration that can be linked to a multitude of events such as wars, transition moments, colonisation and de-colonisation, economic impacts, persecution or others.

4. European integration and its defining achievements
European integration has substantially transformed the life of Europeans. While it has provided new opportunities for cross border travel, study and work, it has also affected the identities of people who more and more feel European as part of their identity. European integration has progressively advanced and protected the rights of people in all EU countries, rights that are often taken for granted now. However, apart from being an institutional process, European integration has been built and advanced by different people and movements at different moments. From the Ventotene manifesto to the Congress of Europe, the foundation for European integration has a long history. The projects under this priority should explore and promote to all generations the defining moments and reference points of European integration, its history, and how these changes have in practice affected the daily lives of Europeans. Projects can focus on specific rights granted in the European Union such as freedom of movement, on specific achievements such as a common currency, or on defining moments such as accession of countries. Testimonies of witnesses could be a particular valuable resource for making the experience tangible, and provide an intergenerational perspective.
