President Enrique Peña Nieto awarded the 2016 National Prize for Human Rights to the late Rodolfo Stavenhagen.

Sociologist and anthropologist Rodolfo Stavenhagen, a pioneer in the struggle for human rights, died on November 5 of this year at the age of 84. He was born in 1932 in Germany but left his country in 1940 during the war.

At the ceremony, which took place in the Adolfo López Mateos room in Los Pinos, Peña Nieto gave Stavenhagen’s family a diploma, a gold medal and a check for 250,000 pesos.

The National Human Rights Award is a recognition given by the public to people who stand out in the promotion and defense of fundamental rights.

In addition to the speech by Peña Nieto, president of the National Human Rights Commission (CNDH) Luis Raúl González Pérez and Gabriel Stavenhagen Gutiérrez, son of Rodolfo Stavenhagen, gave speeches.

At the end of the ceremony, Peña Nieto went go to the National Arts Center (Cenart) for a tribute to Rafael and Teresa Tovar.
