Über die Veranstaltung
The Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom continues its worldwide commitment to support independent journalism. Together with the German Publishers & Booksellers Association, we will be presenting the sixth Raif Badawi Award for courageous Journalists. The winner of the Award will be revealed shortly.
The award, which was jointly initiated by Ensaf Haidar, Raif Badawi’s wife and co-founder of the Raif Badawi Foundation, and prominent German TV news presenter Constantin Schreiber, honours journalists or organisations and focuses on human rights violations. At the same time it aims to keep Raif Badawi’s case in the public consciousness.
The ceremony will be hosted by Constantin Schreiber, the laudatio delivered by Agnes Callamard, UN Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions.
