The Rafto Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to the global promotion of human rights. The Professor Thorolf Rafto Memorial Prize for Human Rights (i.e. the Rafto Prize) has been awarded every year since 1987. The prize sheds light on human rights violations and gives recognition to human rights defenders who deserve the world’s attention. There are no geographical or issue constraints regarding the individuals or organisations that may receive the prize. Each year they award a person or an organisation who stand up for human rights and democracy. They encourage everyone with an interest in or knowledge of human rights to make a nomination for the Rafto Prize.
The Rafto Prize shall help to strengthen the influence of the Prize Laureates’ work on human rights, and the foundation shall facilitate network-building with other Rafto Prize Laureates and fellow human rights defenders. The Rafto Foundation shall increase its ability to influence the work of the business community and schools on human rights. It shall reinforce its work by developing partnerships and collaboration agreements with centres of expertise.
Anyone with an interest in and knowledge about human rights is welcome to nominate candidates.
Actions can take place in various countries worldwide.
The Rafto Prize laureate receives a diploma and prize money of $20,000.
Nominations can be submitted online by 1 February, 2023.
