Ceremony for the 2019 Martin Ennals Award (Geneva)

Wednesday, 13 February, 2019

The 2019 Martin Ennals Award will be presented on 13 February 2019 at a ceremony hosted by the City of Geneva, which for many years has strongly supported the Award.

Honouring Martin Ennals, Amnesty International Secretary-General from 1968 to 1980, the Martin Ennals Award is chosen by ten leading human rights organizations. Laureates are selected because they have demonstrated a deep commitment to human rights, often working under threat of imprisonment, torture, or worse. The international recognition provided by the Award, on top of raising their profile and their work, often provides significant protection.
