EU Human Rights Defenders (HRD) Award 2022



EU Human Rights Defenders (HRD) Award 2022

The Embassy of Italy in Uganda together with other EU Members states is proud to announce that nominations for the EU Human Rights Defenders Award 2022 are now open. The award, which is now in its 11th year, is presented annually, to raise awareness of the work of Human Rights Defenders in Uganda.

Who is a human rights defender?

Human Rights Defenders are people who promote and protect universally recognised human rights and fundamental freedoms using exclusively non-violent means. 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.

Who can submit nominations?

Individuals or organisations can nominate candidates for the EU HRD Award. Nominations from human rights organisations active in Uganda are particularly welcome.

The Embassy of Italy considers the protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms at the core of its values. Help us find that person by sending your nomination and sharing this call for nominations. Follow link #EUHRDAward2022
