“Defenders’ Days – Empowering Human Rights Defenders at Risk” is a conference organised by Civil Rights Defenders. To the conference, we welcome human rights defenders from all over the world to Stockholm where they take part in an extensive capacity building programme.
Each year in April, we invite the public to join us at the award ceremony where we hand out the Civil Rights Defender of the Year Award to one prominent human rights defenders. At the ceremony, we celebrate the work and achievements of a brave human rights defender who continues to strive to ensure other people’s human rights.
The next award ceremony will be organised in April 2017.
