Nominate a Candidate for the 2020 Martin Ennals Award


Three finalists will be selected by Jury and announced in October/November 2019. The Laureate will be announced in February 2020.

The Martin Ennals Award is intended for human rights defenders (HRD) who are defending the rights of others, while at risk. This could include physical danger, repressive legal processes, or other forms of harassment. We are looking to provide protection through widespread publicity, therefore:

1. The HRD must be currently active. Please note, we will not consider posthumous nominations.
2. The HRD must be demonstrably at risk.
3. The HRD must work with non-violent means.

Nominations close on 26 March 2019.
