Sub-granting Scheme 2024 - Young Justice Transformers

Objectives of the Call

One of the main CFJ-EN objectives is to empower children to have their rights respected in judicial proceedings, to collect in a participatory manner their voices and make them heard, and to build their capacity to become advocates of their rights.

This sub-granting call operates within this Strategic Priority 1 with the aim to increase the participation of children in CFJ-EN’s member organisations. The 2024 Grant Agreement signed between the CFJ-EN and the EC includes a sub-granting scheme to award two to three eligible CFJ-EN Members with a 12-month grant to lead Young Justice Transformers in the country they are based in.

Selection Process

Once project proposals have been submitted and the call has closed, the Operational Team of the CFJ-EN will be in charge of sending applications to the pre-appointed Review Committee, and to organise one or several meetings for the selection of awarded projects.

Potential conflicts of interest during the selection procedure will be avoided as follows:

  1. CFJ-EN Steering Committee members who are interested in applying to the call will not be eligible to be part of the Review Committee.

  2. CFJ-EN Members who are interested in applying to the call will not be eligible to be part of the Review Committee.

  3. During the evaluation process, discussions in the Steering Committee in relation to the Sub-granting scheme will be done without the participation of CFJ-EN members who might have applied or are considering applying to the call.

  4. The external expert who will be invited to the Review Committee should not have be involved with any of the current CFJ-EN members. This therefore excludes experts who are for example part of the governance structures of CFJ-EN members at national or international levels.

  5. As a recipient of the Operating Grant, DCI Belgium is excluded from submitting a proposal to the Call as CFJ-EN Member.

Review Committee

In order to ensure impartiality of the decision, the review an assessment of proposals will be made by a collegial selection committee. The selection committee will be composed of:
