We are happy that the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights receives the Democracy Award of the Margaretha Lupac Foundation in 2016. In its explanatory statement, the jury underlines the importance of sound research for the further development and strengthening of democracy and acknowledges the high international reputation of the researchers working at the institute. Furthermore, our long-standing tradition in the area of citizenship education is honored.
We are proud and grateful that our work is that highly valued. The award is stimulus and motivation for us to continue and intensify our work for democracy and human rights.
