The prize will be awarded at an event at the United Nations Headquarters in New York on 10 December 2013, as part of the annual commemoration of the Human Rights Day.

The United Nations Prize in the Field of Human Rights was instituted by the General Assembly in 1966 (Res. 2217/XX1 of 19 December 1966), and was awarded for the first time on 10 December 1968 on the occasion of the commemoration of the twentieth anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

This committee is composed of the President of the General Assembly, the President of the Economic and Social Council, the President of the Human Rights Council, the Chair of the Commission on the Status of Women and the Chairman of the Human Rights Council Advisory Committee.

The Prize is an opportunity not only to give public recognition to the achievements of the awardeesthemselves, but also to send a clear message to human rights defenders the world over that the international community is grateful for, and supports, their tireless efforts to promote all human rights for all.
