“For dedication to openness, democracy and informed debate about European institutions, keeping us reliably informed and suitably engaged for the last 20 years.

“The Liberty Human Rights Awards aim to honour those individuals and organisations dedicated to protecting and promoting the rights of others. It is an opportunity to give proper recognition to the people who provide essential support, information or inspiration on human rights issues and to say thank you – not only to those shortlisted, but to all the countless individuals who fight to further protect and extend rights and freedoms for us all.”
