Join us for the 10th Annual Emilio Mignone Lecture on Transitional Justice. For this milestone occasion, NYU Law’s Center for Human Rights and Global Justice and the International Center for Transitional Justice are delighted to host the former UN Special Rapporteur on the promotion of truth, justice, reparation and guarantees of non-recurrence (2012-2018).
 
This lecture series was named after human rights advocate Emilio Fermín Mignone, founder and director of the Centro de Estudios Legales y Sociales, and loving father of Monica Maria Candelaria Mignone, whom the Argentine military forcibly disappeared on May 14, 1976. The series honors Mignone’s lifelong commitment to human rights, accountability, and justice and his vital leadership in documenting disappearances and other grave human rights violations committed by Argentina’s security forces.
 
Past speakers have included Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein, Sherrilyn Ifill, Darren Walker, José Zalaquett, Louise Arbour, and Aryeh Neier.
