The award aims at encouraging human rights defenders who are at risk and therefore in need of immediate protection. The Martin Ennals Foundation is a unique collaboration among ten of the world's leading human rights NGOs, who form the jury: Amnesty International; Human Rights Watch; International Federation of Human Rights; World Organization Against Torture; Front Line; International Commission of Jurists; Human Rights First; International Service for Human Rights; Diakonie Germany; HURIDOCS."
