The Sydney Peace Foundation’s Gold Medal for Human Rights is a prestigious acknowledgement of an individual’s tireless commitment to human rights.
The Gold Medal is distinct from the Sydney Peace Prize, which is the Foundation’s preeminent accolade awarded once a year. The Sydney Peace Prize involves a year long process of a public call for nominations and deliberations by the Sydney Peace Prize Jury. The Gold Medal is presented occasionally and the decision to bestow a Gold Medal is made by the Sydney Peace Foundation Executive Council.
