About the CIPDH-UNESCO
The International Centre for the Advancement of Human Rights (CIPDH - UNESCO-ICPHR) was established in 2009 as the first UNESCO Category 2 Centre in the world dedicated to the promotion of human rights. As a result of an agreement between UNESCO and the Argentine State, it operates in Buenos Aires as a decentralised entity within the Executive Branch of the national government, under the auspices and programmatic alignment of UNESCO.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, International Trade and Worship sits on its Board of Directors, together with the Ministry of Education and the Human Rights Secretariat of the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights.
The CIPDH-UNESCO manages its activity on the basis of standards of excellence, according to defined thematic areas, optimising resources in order to satisfy the demands of the interested parties with the main objective of promoting the deepening of the democratic system, the consolidation of human rights - civil, political, economic, social, cultural and of an emerging nature - and the prevalence of the values of life, liberty and human dignity.
