Facing all the Facts

CEJI – A Jewish Contribution to an Inclusive Europe, in partnership with ENIL, has been awarded significant funding from the European Commission DG Justice, to support the new project: “Facing all the Facts”. Built on the success of the European project “Facing Facts! – make hate crime visible”(where ENIL is a partner), this new phase aims to build the capacities of law enforcement and public authorities to take a victim-centred approach to monitoring and recording hate crime and hate speech through online training. The two-year grant will also support research to identify gaps and opportunities to improve co-operation and data sharing between criminal justice systems and civil society organisations. The research will inform EU policy.

Independent Living Research Network

The aim of ENIL’s Independent Living Research Network (ILRN) is to facilitate communication and development of joint initiatives among researchers and campaigners who focus in their work on Independent Living (IL) and kindred topics such as deinstitutionalisation, personal assistance, Article 19 of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, and others.

European Coalition for Community Living (ECCL)

The European Coalition for Community Living (ECCL) is a Europe-wide cross disability initiative working towards the social inclusion of disabled people by promoting the provision of comprehensive, quality community-based services as an alternative to institutionalisation. ECCL was founded in 2005 by ENIL, Autism Europe, the Center for Policy Studies of the Central European University, the European Disability Forum, Inclusion Europe, Mental Health Europe and the Open Society Mental Health Initiative.

TRIPS project

ENIL is part of a 3-year European project called TRIPS, which was launched in the beginning of 2020 and is funded by the European Union through Horizon 2020. The main aim of the project is to make the transport in seven European cities – Brussels, Stockholm, Sofia, Bologna, Cagliari, Lisbon and Zagreb –  more accessible for everyone. To do this, the project brings different people in each city together in co-production groups. In these groups, disabled people, transport providers, city councilors and other people involved in transport work together to find ways to make the transport in the city more accessible.
