Applications are now open for the 2019 “Liberty, Equality, Fraternity” Human Rights Prize of the French Republic, awarded by the Prime Minister of the French Government.
This Prize, created in 1988, is awarded in recognition and support for the completion of individual or collective projects carried out in the field, in France or abroad, regardless of nationality or borders, to promote and protect human rights.
Opportunity Focus Areas:

Once the panel has announced the results, the 2019 Prize will be awarded in Paris by the Prime Minister or another French minister, around 10 December 2019.
Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and individual candidates, regardless of nationality or borders, should present an application on one of the two themes for 2019:
Theme 1: young human rights defenders
A young human rights defender is someone aged under 18 (pursuant to Article 1 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child). The situation of young defenders, who face a growing number of attacks and threats around the world, has been highlighted by the UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights Defenders and the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child.
The Human Rights Prize will reward and honor the actions of one or several young defenders.
The duty of brotherhood:
Because the principle of brotherhood is based on the idea of human dignity, it means acting with solidarity, respect for others, tolerance, and goodwill. It means rejecting discriminatory attitudes
