Call for: nominations
UNESCO is inviting Member States, in consultation with their National Commissions, and non-governmental organizations maintaining formal relations with UNESCO working in the field of human rights, to nominate candidates for the second edition of the UNESCO/Bilbao Prize for the Promotion of a Culture of Human Rights.
