The Delegation of the European Union in Riyadh is pleased to announce that the Winner of the Chaillot Prize for the Promotion of Human Rights in the GCC region in 2017 is Glowork. The Chaillot Prize is awarded to this organisation in order to acknowledge and further encourage its remarkable efforts and contribution to empowering women in the labour market, since its creation in 2011. The awarding ceremony will take place in Riyadh, in December 2017.

 The Chaillot Prize is presented annually by the Delegation of the European Union in Riyadh (responsible for relations with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Kingdom of Bahrain, State of Kuwait, Sultanate of Oman and State of Qatar), in co-operation with the Delegation of the European Union to the United Arab Emirates and the Embassies of the European Union Member States to GCC countries, to civil society organisations and public or private institutions for actions, campaigns and projects which support human rights awareness, promotion and protection in the GCC region. The Prize is named after the Palais de Chaillot in Paris where the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted on 10 December 1948 by the United Nations General Assembly.
