The Ambassador of Equatorial Guinea in Brussels, Carmelo Nvono-Ncá, has received the proposal from an important Central American University to become Doctor Honoris Causa in International Law.
Nvono-Ncá, who has had to travel to Madrid for work reasons, received the news from Juan Solaeche, Rector of the International Studies Society (SEI). The award ceremony of the prestigious doctorate is scheduled for this summer and, due to the transportation difficulties imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic, it will be held in a town in Spain.
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 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. .
Although the clearest reason why the prestigious academic institution has opted for Nvono-Ncá to become Doctor Honoris Causa has been his versatile professional profile, in which he mixes diplomacy, international relations and international law. A combination that in the eyes of the jury makes some of his reflections a reference within the field of defense of controversies.
