Martin Ennals Award calls for nominations

The Martin Ennals Award Foundation is seeking nominations for its Human Rights Defenders Award before the deadline of 9 December. Especially sought for the award are those who are fighting for the human rights of others in courageous or innovative ways. The award honours the late Martin Ennals, the first secretary general of Amnesty International.

Individuals or organisations can nominate a human rights defender by filling out the application form on the Martin Ennals Award website and providing contact information for three referees who can advocate for the work of the individual. (Self nominations are not accepted).
