About Right Livelihood Award

The Right Livelihood Award "honours and supports courageous people and organisations that have found practical solutions to the root causes of global problems". Presented annually in Stockholm, the award is usually shared by four recipients.The prize money (3 million Swedish crowns in 2016) is usually shared by the laureates but not always all laureates receive a cash award. Often an Honorary Award is given to a person or group whose work the jury wishes to recognise but who is not primarily in need of monetary support. The prize money is for ongoing successful work, never for personal use. Proposals must not be publicised, except to the candidate and possible referees. As from 2016, there are 166 laureates from 68 countries; only the ones working on human rights are listed here.
