VIETNAM HUMAN RIGHTS AWARDS
Since 2002, the Vietnam Human Rights Network has presented annual Awards to
selected human rights activists and organizations in Vietnam who have made their
mark in the inexorable march towards freedom, human rights and democracy of the
Vietnamese people. It is also an opportunity for Vietnamese in the Diaspora to
express their solidarity with and support for those involved in the relentless
fighting for basic rights and justice for Vietnamese people.
The prize-awarding ceremony was held every year in different locations around
the world on the occasion of the International Human Rights Day (December 10).
After nearly 2 decades of existence, the Vietnam Human Rights Awards have
received positive marks from both inside and outside of Vietnam, despite sharp
criticism by the Vietnamese authorities.
