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 year is the 32nd Edition of the Prize and the French National Consultative Commission on Human Rights (CNCDH) has selected two themes: young human rights defenders and the duty of brotherhood. Results will be published in December 2019.

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.
Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and individual candidates, regardless of nationality or borders, should present an application on one of the two themes for 2019. This application should include a field initiative or project to be implemented in France or abroad.

The five prize winners will be invited to Paris for the official ceremony. Each of them will receive a medal and a grant of €14,000, awarded by the CNCDH to implement the project proposed in their application. The five winners will also be awarded a “special mention” medal by the French ambassador in their country of origin.

Tanzanian citizens can send their application to the Embassy of France to Tanzania until the 15th of September 2019 to the email address "scac.dar-es-salam-amba@diplomatie.gouv.fr".
