Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 1996
This description of Martín Abregú's work was prepared when Martín Abregú was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1996.
Martín Abregú is carving out a new agenda and strategy for Latin American human rights organizations. This strategy shifts both the content and form of traditional human rights work in the region from reactive to proactive, from radical strikes against disappearances, physical torture and other military crimes to deliberate use of media, lobbying, consulting and litigation tools for the protection of individual rights and civil liberties.
