Emilio F. Mignone International Human Rights Award

Fecha de Publicación : 08/10/2021

The Argentine Republic invites foreign institutions and/or individuals residing abroad that are engaged in the protection of Human Rights in their countries to submit nominations for the 2021 edition of the Emilio F. Mignone International Human Rights Award.

Call for nominations is open until October 25th.
The Emilio F. Mignone International Human Rights Award was established in 2007 by the Argentine Ministry of Foreign Affairs, International Trade and Worship to recognize the work of foreign institutions and/or individuals residing abroad in the promotion and protection of Human Rights.
The award is inspired by the life and work of Emilio F. Mignone, one of the main advocates of human rights in our country and a founding member of the Centre for Legal and Social Studies (CELS).
The award seeks to help the winning organization or individual to raise awareness of the issues on which they work, strengthen the bonds with Argentine civil society organizations, and show appreciation for their commitment to the promotion and defense of human rights in their country of origin.
The selection process is guided by the example set by the tireless fight of Argentine human rights organizations, made up of victims, relatives and human rights advocates who have sought to eradicate impunity for the serious crimes committed in Argentina’s recent past, thereby consolidating the process of Memory, Truth and Justice, and strengthening democratic institutions.
The Award is given every year at a ceremony presided over by the Minister of Foreign Affairs and attended by officials from the Argentine Secretariat for Human Rights, CELS representatives and the Mignone family. The award ceremony is also attended by government officials, members of human rights organizations, members of the diplomatic corps accredited to Argentina, and the general public.
Foreign institutions and individuals residing abroad are invited to read more details and submit their candidates in the link below
