Summary "The EU is strongly committed to preventing and eradicating all forms of torture and other ill-treatment as well as to abolishing the death penalty throughout the world. The Court assessed the effectiveness of the European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights, which provides grants to civil society organisations for implementing projects that pursue these objectives. The Court concludes that the support provided was only partially effective. Although the Commission made appropriate needs assessments, it did not optimally target the funding. Because of this and also due to unfavourable political contexts, the overall impact of the projects funded was not optimal. The Court makes a number of recommendations for the Commission that concern the selection of project proposals, the coordination with other EU efforts, the performance measurement framework and the sustainability of beneficiary organization." -- Page 4 of cover.
