The Nobel Peace Prize for 2022 has been announced. One of the three Peace Prize laureates this year is the Centre for Civil Liberties from Ukraine, whom NCG had the opportunity to work with during the Sida-funded Civil Society Systems Help program (2017-2019).
The Centre for Civil Liberties was established in 2007 to promote human rights values, and has since the Russian invasion of Ukraine engaged in “efforts to identify and document Russian war crimes against the Ukrainian civilian population”. We would like to congratulate the Centre for Civil Liberties, the human rights organization Memorial from Russia, and the human rights advocate Ales Bialiatski from Belarus for their award, which has drawn more well-deserved recognition and attention to the fight for peace, human rights and democracy.
