This description of Martín Böhmer's work was prepared when Martín Böhmer was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1995.
Employing a strategy that has not been utilized by other human rights advocates in Argentina, Martín Bohmer is pursing test cases with important rights-guaranteeing potential in the Argentine courts. In so doing, he is providing his fellow countrymen with a much-needed instrument for remedying rights abuses, and he is instilling a service ethic that has been notably absent in Argentina's legal profession.
