The Ambassador of Equatorial Guinea to the European Union, Carmelo Nvono-Ncá, received the excellent news this week that he will be named Doctor Honoris Causa in Human Rights, within the context of International Law, by a prestigious Latin American university.
A few days ago we reported on this website about the candidacy of Nvono-Ncá for this prestigious title, which has finally been confirmed. Specifically, the Autonomous University of the State of Morelos, in Mexico, will be in charge of appointing Ambassador Nvono-Ncá Doctor Honoris Causa. The decision has been made with the approval of the President of the National Association of the Mexican Bar Association (ANACAM), the President of the Mexican Doctoral Senate, the President of the Board of Directors of the National Association of Lawyers, the President of the University Academic Senate, as well as by the Rector of the university and cultural center of Morelos, the Institutional Rector of the university center of English, the General Secretary of the Mexican doctoral faculty and the General Secretary of the National Council of Organization of the Civil Association, among other high authorities.
The appointment ceremony as Doctor Honoris Causa is scheduled for this summer and, due to the difficulties of transfer imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic, it will be held in a city of the European Union.
The Doctorate Honoris Causa is an honorary degree given by a university, professional associations, academies or colleges to eminent persons. This designation is awarded mainly to characters who have excelled in certain professional fields. In the case of Ambassador Nvono-Ncá, his candidacy is supported by his role as his agent before the International Court of Justice (ICJ), both in the case before the Court of Arbitration against a Spanish company, and in the case against France.
