Nominations Open for The 2019 Front Line Defenders Award for Human Rights Defenders at Risk!

Deadline: 5 January 2019

Front Line Defenders is currently accepting nominations for 2019 Front Line Defenders Award for Human Rights Defenders at Risk.

As 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the seminal Stonewall uprising which led to the global movement of LGBT+ Pride marches the 2019 Front Line Defenders Award will prioritise honouring the work of human rights defenders (HRDs) at risk working to defend and advance the rights of the LGBT+ community.

The annual Front Line Defenders Award was established in 2005 to honour the work of HRDs who are courageously making outstanding contributions to the promotion and protection of the human rights of others, often at great personal risk to themselves. The Award focuses international attention on the HRDs work, providing them with a greater national and international platform to speak about and advocate for their work.

From an open nomination process, 5 HRDs will be identified as regional award winners for Africa, the Americas, Asia, ECA and the MENA and from these 5 regional winners, an overall global Award laureate will be identified by a jury of Irish and European parliamentarians.

Selection Criteria

  • the nature of human rights defender’s work
  • the impact of human rights defender’s work in advancing the rights of others
  • the level of risk or negative consequences associated with human rights defender’s work
  • the continued commitment to advancing human rights, despite high level risks
  • the potential impact of receiving the Award on the human rights defender and their work
