From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Martin Ennals (1927 - 1991) was a British human rights activist.

Martin Ennals served as the third Secretary-General of Amnesty International, between 1968 and 1980.

He went on to help found the British human rights organisation ARTICLE 19, followed by International Alert in 1985.

The Martin Ennals Award for Human Rights Defenders, created in 1993, is granted annually to someone who has demonstrated an exceptional record of combating human rights violations by courageous means and is in need of protection. The Martin Ennals Award gives international "protective publicity" to human rights defenders around the world, mainly in their country of origin, through mass media (television, radio and internet). The winner is selected by a Jury made up of 10 leading international human rights organisations.
