On the occasion of the International Human Rights Day and invited by Freedom Park, Ambassador of the Argentine Republic in Pretoria Alberto D'Alotto delivered a Public Lecture in which he explained how the tragic experience of the last military dictatorship brought about consensus in the Argentine society about the importance of human rights and fundamental freedoms and how these have played a fundamental role in the strengthening of the democracy.
He also highlighted Argentina's strong commitment with human rights and how Argentina's foreign policy has been shaped by these principles and activated our diplomacy in international organizations such the Organization of American States (OAS) and the United Nations (UN), particularly in the UN Human Rights Council.
Ambassador D'Alotto also spoke about the work of the Argentine Forensic Anthropology Team and how they have collaborated with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of South Africa and continue to cooperate with South Africa as well as with other countries that have gone through similar processes.
The Lecture was accompanied by a photographic exhibition called "42 years. Memory, Truth and Justice. Human Rights Movement in Argentina".
