Ariadne News & Events

CLIMATE JUSTICE GUIDE FOR FUNDERSThe consequences of climate change are all around us: rising sea levels, extreme weather, and a compromised global food supply. But the burden of this change is most felt by marginalized communities and philanthropy needs to respond. Centering Equity and Justice in Climate Philanthropy, Candid’s new field guide for funders created in collaboration with Ariadne, provides practical information and case studies to help grantmakers do more good.

FUNDING FOR REAL CHANGE: Funding for Real Change website was recently launched by Ariadne and EDGE Funders containing good practices, resources, and tools for flexible funding and indirect cost coverage. You’re invited to visit the website and look out for this space as more resources will be released soon!

HOW TO FUND TECH: How to Fund Tech is a guide for people working in trusts and foundations who want to effectively fund technology. The resource can serve as a jumping-off point to social change and human rights funders, and a place to begin discussions within your foundation and ask questions to help you navigate a technology-heavy grant, even if you feel you lack the expertise to evaluate the project completely. It is a resource that can help build a larger pool of funders who do not identify as tech funders or digital rights experts but feel capable to speak to some of the ways technology is impacting their grantees and long-term vision for society.

HUMAN RIGHTS GRANTMAKING PRINCIPLES microsite: We invite you to (re)visit the Human Rights Grantmaking Principles microsite, which contains regularly updated content. The materials published on the site reflect the wisdom and experience of a growing body of participants and partners around the world!

SAVE THE DATE – Grant Skills Week 2022: What does accountability mean for social justice funders? During the Grant Skills Week 2022, different accountability perspectives will be explored, including how philanthropy is accountable for the unequal distribution of wealth, to whom philanthropy is accountable, and what accountability means for foundation investments. The event will take place online from 25 to 27 October 2022, and registration information will be announced soon. In the meantime, please save the date! 

UNDERSTANDING AND UPROOTING RACISM IN GRANTMAKING INSTITUTIONS: Since the middle of 2020, following the murder of George Floyd and the resultant #BlackLivesMatter movement uprisings around the world, we at Ariadne have been working with Healing Solidarity to create a space for you to have more “uncomfortable” conversations about race and ethnicity, and especially racial justice issues within European foundations. Initially in 2020 we offered a process that included shared webinars and racialised cohort sessions to provide a space for learning, sharing and deepening your practice. During 2021, drop-in sessions were offered for all those who participated in that process and earlier this year we offered a new series of cohort sessions for those who did not participate previously.  For the rest of 2022 drop-in spaces will be offered to build on this work and continue to support you. The next webinar will take place on 12 July, at 12:00 PM (GMT). You can register for it here. Dates for subsequent sessions throughout the year are as follows:

September: Cohort drop-in session: Tues 13 Sept, 1-2.30 pm CEST
Senior Leaders’ session: Tues 20 Sept, 1- 2.30 pm CEST
October: Mixed drop-in session: Tues 18 Oct, 1-2.30 pm CEST
November: Cohort drop-in session: Tues 15 Nov, 1-2.3o pm CET
December: Mixed drop-in session: Tues 6 Dec, 1-2.30 pm CEST

New Research, Articles and Judgements

ILGA Rainbow MapRainbow map: ILGA Europe’s Rainbow map shows countries pushing forward with LGBTI rights as democracy is confronted. The map ranks the legal and policy situation of LGBTI people in 49 countries, and it shows that a new dynamic has appeared in the last 12 months to fill in the gaps that exist around LGBTI equality, and push standards at a time when democracy in the region is being challenged. After several years of reporting a disturbing standstill on LGBTI rights, the latest Rainbow Europe Map and Index identifies steps forward in LGBTI rights in several countries, with the clear understanding that equality and freedom for all are at the core of democracy. But while some are pushing forward, others continue to exploit anti-LGBTI sentiment as part of an agenda to erode freedom and equality.

Hidden in Plain Sight: People from Ukraine & the risks of Human Trafficking.
Human trafficking is said to be the greatest human rights issue of our time. It is happening all around us – ‘hidden in plain sight’. Most victims of human trafficking do not know they are a victim. People from Ukraine who are arriving in Scotland are at particular risk and each one of us have a role to play in ensuring victims are identified, recovered, survivors are supported, and perpetrators are brought to justice. An introduction to human trafficking, strengthening your knowledge, dispelling myths, and assisting you to know your role in responding. This event will take place online on 21st June from 12:00 – 13:00 BST.

Weaving a Collective Tapestry: Launching the Funders’ Toolkit for Child and Youth Participation.
Even for those funders who understand the value of PGM, implementing meaningful child and youth participation can be challenging.  Despite the many excellent resources available for nonprofits and development agencies addressing child and youth participation, few resources exist that address the unique, practical needs of funders.

Human rights and conflict mediation: Exploring the link.

In this event, we will hear from current and former mediators and human rights experts on how human rights issues have been considered and integrated into different peace processes, and the challenges and opportunities they have encountered. We want to explore how human rights can contribute to advance dialogue and find political solutions. This event will take place on 22nd June 2022 from 16:00 – 17:00 CEST.

In this Community Conversation, Ghazal and Mark will discuss how the Institute has sowed the seeds for effective change, offering practical ways to dismantle and reconstruct the existing system. This event will take place online on 28th June at 10:00 AM EST / 15:00 PM BST / 19:30 PM IST.

The second part will feature a similarly cross-sectoral panel of experts who will discuss potential solutions, frameworks, and case studies. Lastly, there will be a Q&A session, where the audience will have ample time to ask any of the speaker’s questions. This event will take place online on 28th June from 13:00 – 15:00 BST.


30th June
On the Political Economy of Ethnic Violence and Statelessness. The ideology of the postcolonial ‘developmental’ state not only results in the marginalisation of minorities but also serves to legitimise and gloss over asymmetric power relations that produce such marginalisation. Development projects disproportionately target minority lands and forests, with long-term devastating effects on the cultures and the very existence of minorities. Statelessness is a direct outcome of such political and economic marginalisation as part of the ideological operation of the postcolonial ‘developmental’ state. International law provides a framework within which international actors and postcolonial states suppress minority interests in the name of economic development, whereas minorities – being politically marginalised – suffer the most due to such development activities. Genocidal violence against the Rohingya minority in Myanmar illustrates these arguments. This event will take place on 30th June from 18:00 – 19:00 AEST/10:00 – 11:00 AM CEST.

1st July

This event will take place online on 1st July from 14:00 – 15:00 CEST. 

6th July
What would the end of abortion rights in America mean for the world? When Justice Samuel Alito’s abrasive 98-page draft calling for the end of federal abortion rights in America was leaked to Politico, it threatened to reverse a historic victory of the global women’s movement. Abortion has been legal throughout the US for nearly a half century, since the Supreme Court’s 1973 landmark Roe v Wade decision. If the Supreme Court overturns this ruling later this summer, abortion will be banned in dozens of US states, and anti-abortion forces around the world may feel empowered to enact new restrictions elsewhere, with fatal consequences for the poorest communities and for reproductive freedom everywhere. What comes next? Will we see increased criminalization of abortion in the US? Will other rights, such as marriage equality and IVF access, be targeted next as Christian fundamentalists gain further traction in US politics? How will this ruling impact US Congressional elections later this year given that more than seven in 10 Americans oppose the overturning of Roe v Wade? This event will take place online on 6th July 2022 from 20:00 – 21:00 BST.

14th – 15th July
New Frontiers in Funding, Philanthropy and Investment conference.
This live-streamed conference organised by JRF will bring together innovators across the worlds, to learn from one another and make new connections.

And we want to highlight financing and funding practices that have the potential to invest in – and even speed up – a transition towards a regenerative, fairer future. This event will take place online from 14th – 15th July.

18th July
Using human rights as a tool for social justice. Just Fair will host a free interactive online workshop for organisations and activists to explore social justice as a human rights issue and how a human rights – specifically economic, social and cultural rights – based approach can be a powerful tool in your campaigning.
