Pax Christi International Peace Award

Pax Christi International Peace Award

The Pax Christi International Peace Award is given out every year since 1988 by the Christian peace organisation Pax Christi to other peace organisations and peace activists. The focus lies on grassroots activists and organisations that are active in an ongoing conflict, working against violence and injustice. It is considered one of the most important peace awards awarded by international non-governmental organizations. The award is funded by the Cardinal Bernardus Alfrink Peace Fund and the board of the organisation Pax Christi International decides the winners. The annual award recipients usually get media attention in Catholic news outlets worldwide.
