Sida (Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency) invites civic organisations and other relevant actors to apply for funding for initiatives where ICT is being used to support democracy and freedom of expression.
The specific objective of this call is to provide support to initiatives and activities in which the Internet and new technologies are used to strengthen actors who work for democratisation and freedom of expression, mainly in challenging and repressive environments.
This call for proposals refers to the Swedish Special Initiative for Democratisation and Freedom of Expression, to be implemented by Sida during the period 2012–2014. Deadline for submission of applications is 18 October 2012. See here for more information.
