UNESCO Director General Koďchiro Matsuura has awarded the 2009 UNESCO International José Martí Prize to Atilio Alberto Borón, former executive secretary of the Latin American and Caribbean Council of Social Sciences (CLACSO). The award will be presented during a ceremony in Havana, Cuba, on July 17.

“The José Martí Prize was conferred upon Atilio Alberto Borón to reward his tireless intellectual commitment to the unity and integration of countries in Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as his contribution to the study and promotion of José Martí’s thinking,” stated UNESCO.

The International José Martí Prize was created by the executive board in 1994 on the initiative of Cuba to reward an individual, institution, other entity, or nongovernmental organization that has contributed to the unity and integration of countries in Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as to the preservation of their identities, cultural traditions, and historical values.
