Igor Botan, Moldova
"Mr. Botan has arguably done more than any other person to bring Moldovan law and practice into line with international democratic standards. He leads the Association for Participatory Democracy (ADEPT), the foremost Moldovan non-governmental organization in the areas of voter education and election monitoring. Despite changes in the local political environment, he has remained scrupulously independent and consistent in promoting democratic values and the rule of law."
