Grant Award to set up an NGO Resource Centre in Transnistria
As a result of a competition held in March this year, the Council of Europe awarded the Tiraspol-based Legal Informational Center Apriori a grant to set up an NGO resource center in Transnistria. The resource center will work with NGOs to provide free of charge consulting on management, fundraising, financing, project development and proposal writing. The center is expected to be equipped with a library and the necessary equipment to provide NGOs with the space and resources for meetings, capacity building activities and consultations. NGOs are invited to visit Apriori’s website for more information ( http://apriori-center.org/about ).
These activities will stimulate a culture of dialogue and exchange for NGOs from the both banks of the river Nistru/Dniestr.
Financial support for this project is provided by the Austrian Development Agency (ADA).

Ending violence against women must become a top priority
Strasbourg, 29.07.2014 – "On August 1, the Istanbul Convention, a landmark treaty of the Council of Europe dedicated to preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence, will enter into force. It could not come at a better time. Violence against women remains one of the most widespread human rights violations which takes place every day in Europe; intimate partner violence is still among the major causes of non-accidental death, injury and disability for women. This tragic situation stems from a variety of social, economic and cultural reasons, but a common background condition is glaring inequality between men and women. The Convention has the potential to become a powerful driver in making progress on this pressing human rights issue", says Nils Muižnieks, Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights, in his latest Human Rights Comment published today.
