DAPHNE 1997 Selected Projects


What is the Daphne II Programme?

The Daphne II programme runs from 2004 until 2008 with a budget of EUR 50 million. It aims at supporting organisations that develop measures and actions to prevent or to combat all types of violence against children, young people and women and to protect the victims and groups at-risk.

The need for concerted worldwide action to defend human rights and to eliminate violence has long been recognised at different levels and in different ways.


Several measures have been taken along these lines, such as the 1979 Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women, the 1989 Convention on the Rights of the Child, the platform for action of the 1995 Beijing Conference, and the 1996 Stockholm Declaration and Agenda for Action at the first World Congress against the Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children.

At the second World Congress against the Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children, in Yokohama in December 2001, the Daphne programme implemented by the European Commission was acknowledged as a very useful tool.


Why a European programme to prevent violence against women and children?


The Daphne II programme runs from May 2004 to 31 December 2008. It is complementary to programmes that exist in the Member States of the European Union, especially in the way it focuses on the exchange of good practices about violence across the Union.


Daphne represents the starting point of NGOs and voluntary organisations cooperation at EU-level in the fight against violence towards children, young people and women. It encourages NGOs to set up or reinforce European networks and helps them implement innovative projects, the results of which can be disseminated to other Member States and regions.

In many cases, these organisations offer services which the public authorities do not have the power or the ability to provide. Society will only benefit from the expertise and experience of the NGOs if their ideas and programmes are disseminated throughout the European Community and shared with like-minded organisations in other Member States.


What are the characteristics of the Daphne II programme?


The Daphne II programme supports actions to combat all types of violence against children, young people and women in Europe and all aspects of this phenomenon (violence in the family, violence in schools and other establishments, violence at work, commercial sexual exploitation, genital mutilation, health repercussions, trafficking in human beings, rehabilitation of perpetrators, etc.).


The activities that can be supported are:


1. identification and exchanges of good practice and work experience with a view in particular to implementing preventive measures and assistance to victims;

2. mapping surveys, studies and research;

3. field work with the involvement of the beneficiaries in all phases of project design, implementation and evaluation;

4. creation of sustainable multidisciplinary networks;

5. training and design of educational packages;

6. development and implementation of treatment programmes and support for victims and people at risk, as well as for perpetrators;

7. development and implementation of awareness-raising activities targeted to specific audiences;


From the total budget of EUR 50 Million, the Commission can also use 15% at its own initiative to improve the programme’s impact and to play a more proactive rule with a view to the dissemination of good practices. Activities to be covered are threefold. First, to develop indicators on violence, so that the extent of a number of violence phenomena can be quantified. A second axis is to extract and deduce policy issues, wherever possible, from the work achieved by funded projects, with the aim of suggesting common policies on violence at Community level and reinforcing judicial practice. Finally, the third axis aims to disseminate, on a Europe-wide scale, good practices stemming from funded projects. These activities are supported through call for proposals and/or tenders.
