The Taiwan Foundation for Democracy (TFD) is calling for nominations for the 16th Asia Democracy and Human Rights Award (ADHRA).
There was no award recognizing efforts in developing or sustaining democracy and human rights in Asia until 2006. As the first national democracy assistance foundation in Asia, the TFD established the ADHRA — the first democracy and human rights award in Asia — to support courageous individuals and groups who build democracy, stand up for justice, and defend human rights. The ADHRA is annually awarded to one individual or organization that has made significant contributions to the advancement of democracy or human rights in Asia through peaceful means.
The laureate will be awarded a US$100,000 grant and award at an official ceremony in Taipei on Dec. 10, International Human Rights Day.
Anyone can nominate an individual or organization for the 16th AHDRA.
