EPIM supports projects led by civil society organisations aiming at:
- upholding and defending the European commitment to Universal Human Rights and social justice, to ensure the dignity of all people in the European Union;
- promoting gender-sensitive, inclusive and pragmatic approaches to European and national policies on migration and integration;
- influencing EU policies and their national implementation in areas defined in EPIM’s sub-funds.
EPIM works through thematic sub-funds allowing for flexible grant-making in concrete topic and geographic areas, timely responding to opportunities and threats in the field of migration and integration.
EPIM opens calls for proposals on a rolling basis. Funding will be provided in the following areas, with openness for additional sub-funds to be introduced in the future:
- Sub-Fund on Immigration Detention
- Sub-Fund on Reforms of the Common European Asylum System
- Sub-Fund on Long-Term Prospects and Protection of Children on the Move in Europe
- Sub-Fund on Mobile EU Citizens’ Access to Housing and Social Benefits
- Sub-Fund on Strategic Communications on migration in a Changing Environment
