The European Union Anti-Corruption Initiative (EUACI), funded by the European Union, co-funded and implemented by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark, consolidates efforts directed at assisting Ukraine’s anti-corruption reforms. The EUACI programme objective is “reduction of corruption in Ukraine at national and local level through the empowerment of citizens, civil society, businesses and state institutions”.

To contribute to this objective, the programme supports three specific objectives: 1) enhanced independence, effectiveness and resilience of anti-corruption institutions functioning within a sound strategic framework (Component 1); 2) reduced corruption at the local level in Integrity Cities and in other cities (Component 2); 3) increased culture of integrity issues in Ukraine through engagement of the business sector, the civil society and the media (Component 3).

The overall goal of the call for CSO proposals under Component 3 is to encourage and support Ukraine’s civil society, business community, and media in the efforts to promote a culture of integrity in the management of public affairs in Ukraine.

The specific objective of the call for CSO proposals under Component 3 is to support strategic and innovative project initiatives from Ukraine’s civil society, investigative media and business networks that are likely to deliver concrete and measurable results in one or more of the following fields:

  1. Ensuring a transparent and efficient process of Ukraine’s reconstruction (including rapid recovery) at the national and/or local level by means of, for instance, policy advocacy, cooperation with authorities or business associations, and monitoring;
  2. Supporting further implementation of anti-corruption reforms necessary to advance Ukraine’s EU integration process;
  3. Monitoring the work on asset recovery, asset forfeiture and asset management;
