The Civil Courage Prize is a human rights award which recognizes "steadfast resistance to evil at great personal risk — rather than military valor."The prize was founded in 2000 by the Northcote Parkinson Fund.The goal of the prize is not to create a "ranking", but "to draw attention individually to some extraordinary heroes of conscience."It was inspired by the example of Soviet dissident Alexander Solzhenitsyn.In 2007, the Northcote Parkinson Fund's name was changed to The Train Foundation in recognition of the contributions of the family of investment advisor John Train, the fund's primary donor.
