The Front Line Defenders is currently accepting nominations for the 2023 Front Line Defenders Award for Human Rights Defenders at Risk.
The purpose of the Award is to give visibility to HRDs who are not normally acknowledged or recognised at the international level. At the same time, the Award should not bring additional risk for which the HRD is not prepared.
The Award focuses national and international attention on the HRD’s work, providing them with a greater national and international platform to speak about and advocate for their work.
- For each region of the world (Africa; Americas; Asia-Pacific; Europe & Central Asia; and Middle East & North Africa) there will be one winner selected and Front Line Defenders will recognize all five as the 2023 Front Line Defenders Award Laureates.
- The nomination process is open for anyone to submit a nomination of a human rights defender, collective, organization, or community working on any human rights issue and facing significant risk due to their work or operating in an environment that itself is characterized as insecure.
Deadline: January 13th, 2023
