UNESCO/Bilbao prize for the Promotion of a Culture of Human Rights

The 2010 UNESCO/Bilbao Prize for the Promotion of a Culture of Human Rights was awarded to Asma Jahangir, a renowned human rights defender and lawyer of the Supreme Court of Pakistan. Alongside the prize, UNESCO also awarded Corporación Parque por la Paz Villa Grimaldi (Villa Grimaldi Peace Park) in Chile an Honorable Mention for its contribution to building a universal culture of human rights.

The biennial UNESCO/Bilbao Prize for the Promotion of a Culture of Human Rights was established in 2008 thanks to a generous endowment from the City of Bilbao and enlarges the scope of the UNESCO Prize for Human Rights Education (1978-2006).

The Prize rewards the outstanding contributions made by organizations and individuals to the cause of human rights through the means of education and research and serves to raise awareness of human rights, particularly among decision-makers and the general public.
