Argentina is committed to the promotion and protection of human rights as a guiding principle and state policy. We believe that the participation of our country in the IHRA, as the only Latin American member, is key not only for maintaining remembrance of the Shoah, but also for preventing genocides and facing present challenges in upholding truth and justice. It is essential to work along side civil society organizations, and other key actors to strengthen these policies.
