Human Rights Tulip 2014

In 2014 the Human Rights Tulip was awarded to Mideast Youth. Mideast Youth builds online platforms to give a voice to people who strive for human rights. These platforms create an environment in which (young) people can discuss subjects that are taboo in parts of the Middle East, such as equal rights for LGBT, equal rights for religious and ethnic minorities such as Baha’i and Kurds and the protection of labour migrants who face difficult living conditions in large parts of the Middle East. The websites are accessible and interactive, to make sure that the message is not just told, but also heard.
