The Anna Lindh Prize 2018 is awarded to Turkish human rights lawyer Eren Keskin

Dela

Eren Keskin leads the organization The Association of Legal Aid Against Sexual Violence.

-      She has worked tirelessly to help violence-deprived girls and women, as well as HBTQ people and Syrian refugees in Turkey. Even when her engagement led to confinement she continued to stand up for defending human rights with no regard to political or religious background, comments Mrs Lena Hjelm-Wallén, chairperson of The Anna Lindh Foundation.

-       Eren Keskin's brave voice is needed today more than anything and her work is totally in accordance with the spirit of Anna Lindh.

The price will be awarded to Eren Keskin on a seminar in Stockholm on the 19th of June which is the birthday of Anna Lindh.

The Anna Lindh Prize was first rewarded 2004.
