What is the North-South Centre?
The European Centre for Global Interdependence and Solidarity is an enlarged partial agreement of the Council of Europe created in 1989 to spread the values of the Council of Europe– human rights, democracy and the rule of law – beyond the European continent.
The North-South Prize is awarded each year since 1995 to two candidates who have stood out for their exceptional commitment to promoting North-South solidarity.
The candidates, preferably a man and a woman, must have distinguished themselves in the following areas: protection of human rights, defence of pluralist democracy, public awareness raising on issues of global interdependence and solidarity. Despite the variety of nationalities and fields of action of those that have received the Prize since its creation, they all have in common a strong commitment to the promotion of North-South partnership.
