June 18, 2015 The Human Rights Tulip is the Dutch government’s human rights award. Foreign minister Bert Koenders will present the prize and the bronze tulip-shaped statue to the winner on 10 December, International Human Rights Day. ‘At a time when human rights are under pressure, support for human rights defenders is more important than ever,’ said the minister. ‘Human rights defenders are struggling to improve human rights every day. They are heroes.’ The Human Rights Tulip is awarded annually to courageous organisations or individuals that promote human rights in innovative ways. The aim is to put their valuable work in the public spotlight. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs works with Hivos to select and support the winner. The prize money is €100,000. It enables the winner to further develop or expand the scale of their human rights work, benefiting more people, in as many places as possible. In 2014 the Human Rights Tulip was awarded to Mideast Youth, an organisation that builds online platforms to give a voice to people working to improve human rights. It is using the prize money to build a new platform that human rights defenders and their organisations can use to improve the presentation of information, work together more effectively and reach a wider audience.

June 11, 2015 The most recent global estimates suggest that some 215 million children are involved in child labour. This persistence of child labour is rooted in poverty and lack of decent work for adults, lack of social protection, and a failure to ensure that all children are attending school through to the legal minimum age for admission to employment. Free and compulsory education of good quality up to the minimum age for admission to employment is a key tool in ending child labour. Attendance at school removes children in part at least from the labour market and lays the basis for the acquisition of employable skills needed for future.
