Asia Democracy and Human Rights Award

Each year, the Asia Democracy and Human Rights Award is awarded to one individual or organization that has made significant contributions to the advancement of democracy or human rights in Asia through peaceful means. As the first national democracy assistance foundation in Asia, the Taiwan Foundation for Democracy is committed to supporting courageous individuals and groups who build democracy, stand up for justice and defend human rights, especially those in our home region.

The Award consists of a sculpture and a US$100,000 grant from the TFD to support the ongoing work of the laureate, to be presented at an official ceremony in Taipei on December 10th, International Human Rights Day.
The Taiwan Foundation for Democracy’s Board of Trustees unanimously approved the Guidelines for the Asia Democracy and Human Rights Award on 21 March 2006, pursuant to TFD’s Bylaws, and with the enthusiastic support of Chairman Wang Jin-pyng.
