The EU-Russia Legal Dialogue continues a travel grants programme for conferences, seminars, workshops and other similar events with a legal thematic reference and a special interest for civil society. You will find some announcements of events in the Legal Dialogue Journal calendar. Please feel also free to send us announcements of your events, we will be pleased to publish them. The aim is to support networking, exchange of successful practices and professional training on the use of existing legal mechanisms for civil society and legal expert communities in Russia and the EU.

The programme supports both your personal travel to thematic events and invitation of experts to events organised by your organisation, but only travel from Russia to the EU or reverse (no travel within Russia or the EU). Another important precondition for receiving funding (up to 850 euro) is the composing of reports or thematic articles for the Legal Dialogue Journal. The travel grants programme is open not only for CSF members, however, applications from CSF members will be treated with priority. Next deadline for applications is 24th of September 2017. The selection of stipendiaries will be carried out by an independent international jury. You will find more detailed information about the application process here.
