Call for Nominations – 2022 North-South Prize


The defense of pluralist democracy is one of the criteria used by the Council of Europe to choose recipients of its North-South Prize, awarded each year since 1995 to two candidates (activists, personalities or organizations) who stand out for their exceptional commitment to promoting North-South solidarity.

The candidates must have distinguished themselves in at least one of these areas: protection of human rights, defense of pluralist democracy, or public awareness-raising on issues of global interdependence and solidarity.

Previous recipients include Ms. Zarifa Ghafari (above), former Mayor of Maidan Shahr, capital of Afghanistan’s Wardak Province, for her courage and strong commitment to defending women’s rights.

Nominations can be submitted through the online form available on the North-South Prize webpage. The deadline for presenting nominations is 15 September. RTWT
