The Sir Henry Brooke Award for Human Rights Defenders is awarded jointly by the Alliance for Lawyers at Risk and Peace Brigades International, in honour of the life and legacy of Sir Henry Brooke – barrister at Fountain Court Chambers, founder of the Alliance for Lawyers at Risk and dearly-missed patron of PBI UK – who passed away in January 2018. The Award is presented annually to human rights defenders who encapsulate the qualities Sir Henry most admired and reflected in his own life: selflessness, courage, and commitment to seeking justice for the oppressed and the marginalised.
