About the Emilio Mignone Lecture Series

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, who was disappeared by the Argentine military 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.
