The Centre for Applied Human Rights at the University of York is opening a new Call for Nominations for the Protective Fellowship Scheme for Human Rights Defenders at Risk. The Centre is planning to host up to eight defenders who are expected to stay in York for 3-6 months. New Fellows are expected to start in York in mid-September 2018 or in special circumstances in early January 2019.
Nominations for female human rights defenders are particularly welcome. For specific information on eligibility criteria and an overview of the Scheme, please visit this website.
Nominations are accepted from recognised civil society organisations and/or organisations working specifically with human rights defenders.
All the documentation should be sent together in one email from the nominating organisation’s email account. Deadline for nominations is 23:59 GMT Sunday 15 April 2018.
