This year, for the fourth time, the EMAlumni Association would like to recognise the value and contribution that EMA alumni bring to society, as a legacy of the EMA spirit and commitment towards the advancement of human rights and democratisation.

After the nomination period, where EMAlumni from around the world nominated their fellow alumni human rights champion, we took the candidates to the jury, who selected this year’s winner.

We have the pleasure of communicating that Veronique has won this year’s award, We have the pleasure of communicating that Veronique Lerch (EMA 1999) has won this year’s award due to her passion and years of dedication to advocating and supporting children’s rights. We will be handing her the award at the EMA graduation ceremony on 25 September the Scuola Grande di San Rocco.
