E-007227/2015(ASW)
Answer given by Ms Jourová on behalf of the Commission
Question reference: E-007227/2015

The European Commission considers fight against racism, xenophobia and related forms of intolerance such as antisemitism or anti-Muslim hatred as its priority and uses all tools at its disposal including funding of civil society projects.

In 2012 the Commission co-financed a project aiming at establishing the Islamophobia Monitoring and Action Network (IMAN) following an open call for proposals under the Fundamental Rights and Citizenship Programme (budget line 33 02 04). Under its priority 4.3 ‘Combating racism, xenophobia and antisemitism (RXAS)’ applicants were invited to submit projects aiming at fighting against racism, xenophobia and related forms of intolerance such as antisemitism, Islamophobia and anti-Roma racism(1). The project aimed at improving data collection, support to victims and training of professionals and organisations.

The selection process took into consideration the eligibility, exclusion, selection and award criteria mentioned in the open call for proposals published on the Commission website, which led to the selection of 40 beneficiaries.

The project was implemented between 1 January 2013 and 31 December 2014. The amount of the EU grant was EUR 70 187.25.

In 2014 and 2015, the Forum of Muslim Youth and Student Organisations (FEMYSO) received two operating grants under Erasmus+, (budget line 15 02 02 02) as a support of civil society cooperation in the field of youth, amounting to EUR 49 881 and EUR 35 000 respectively.
