Eligibility Criteria

  • Non-governmental organizations or individual candidates, regardless of nationality or borders, must submit to the Secretary-General of the CNCDH an application file presenting their actions, carried out in France or abroad, to promote or protect human rights.
  • Although the Declaration on Human Rights Defenders does not define the special qualification required to be a human rights defender – everyone may be a defender if they so wish and act as such – it does affirm in no unclear terms that defenders have a number of responsibilities which candidates must fulfil:
    • Human rights defenders must accept the universality of human rights as defined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
    • Human rights defenders must conduct non-violent actions.

How to Apply
