About us

The Rafto Foundation for Human Rights is a non-profit and non-partisan organization dedicated to the global promotion of human rights. Our main activity is to award the annual Professor Thorolf Rafto’s Prize for Human Rights work. We also support the work of the laureates by contributing to the funding and organization of projects, and we offer human rights education to local and international audiences.
