Since its establishment in 1994, Homo Homini has become one of the most prestigeous awards of its kind. Its purpose is to acknowledge all individuals and organizations for their efforts and help promote their cases in case they are persecuted.
The list of laureates includes famous names as well as relatively unknown individuals. Last year’s laureate is Mahienour El-Massry, an Egyptian human rights lawyer known for her activism and work to promote judicial independence and prisoners' rights.
