Tribute for their Commitment to Human Dignity and Justice

Award Winners from Australia, Bulgaria and South Africa

The schwelle Foundation has announced the winners of the fourth international Bremen Peace Award: the Australian Susan Jennifer Gilbey wins in the category "Unknown Peace Worker" for her tireless efforts advocating for the rights and concerns of asylum seekers. The Bulgarian organizations animus and Pulse Foundation are awarded in the category of "Exemplary Organisations" due to their commitment in supporting women who became victims of trafficking and forced prostitution in Western European countries. And the Anglican bishop Rubin Phillip from KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, is awarded with the Bremen Peace Prize in the Category Public Engagement towards justice and peace. Because he supports those who are still marginalized and are not benefitting from democracy in South Africa: displaced persons, victims of persecution, detainees.
