2018 marks not only the tenth award of the Prize, but also the seventieth anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Four winners were selected by the special committee for the 2018 Prize: Rebeca Gyumi – an activist for the rights of women and girls (Tanzania); Asma Jahangir (posthumously) – a human rights lawyer (Pakistan); Joênia Wapichana (Joênia Batista de Carvalho) – an activist for the rights of indigenous communities (Brazil); and Front Line Defenders – an organization advocating and working for the protection of human rights defenders (Ireland).
