  • Nominations for Human Rights Defenders operating in all parts of Uganda are welcome. Human Rights Defenders are people who promote and protect universally recognised human rights and fundamental freedoms. These include civil and political rights, as well as economic, social and cultural rights. Human Rights Defenders also promote and protect the rights of members of minority groups. The broad range of activities carried out by Human Rights Defenders can include the following:
    • documenting and reporting human rights violations;
    • seeking remedies for victims of human rights violations through the provision of legal, psychological, medical or other support;
    • combating the culture of impunity which can hide systematic and repeated breaches of human rights and fundamental freedoms;
    • mainstreaming a human rights culture, and transmitting information about HRDs at the national, regional and international levels;
    • advocacy for the respect of human rights.
  • Candidates will be assessed by a jury composed of human rights experts of different European Embassies and the EU and Norwegian Heads of Mission. A list of shortlisted candidates will be made public in mid-April, with the winner to be announced during a ceremony at a ceremony hosted by the Royal Norwegian Embassy in May 2019.
