Canning House, in partnership with the Embassy of the Republic of Argentina, is pleased to host Memory: a pathway to peace for Argentina, a platform to discuss the importance of monuments and memory sites to create social consensus after a conflict or repression, to prevent future violations of human rights, as well as to contribute sustaining peace and development.

Between 1976 and 1983 the civic-military dictatorship used the Navy School of Mechanics (ESMA), located in downtown Buenos Aires as a centre for repressive clandestine detention, clandestine maternity, torture, and extermination inflicted by the government. Today the ESMA Site Museum is a symbol for Nunca más (Never Again), representing the commitment to the Memory, Truth, and Justice process developed in Argentina since 1984.

Canning House, alongside the Embassy of Argentina in the UK, is pleased to host this panel to promote the eradication of impunity for crimes against humanity committed during the Argentina’s civil-military dictatorship, moderated by Minister Alessandra M. Viggiano Marra, the Cultural Attaché of Argentina and is in charge of gender and human rights issues at the Embassy of Argentina.
