UNESCO is currently inviting Members States in consultation with their National Commissions, and non-governmental organizations maintaining official relations with UNESCO and active in a field covered by the Prize to submit nominations for the UNESCO-UNAM Jaime Torres Bodet Prize in Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts 2019.
Established in 2014 and fully endowed by the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), the Prize is intended to reward candidates who have made an outstanding contribution to the development of knowledge and society through art, teaching and research in social sciences and humanities.
The Prize was inspired by the life from one of the founding members of UNESCO and Director-General of the Organization from 1948 to 1952. Eminent poet, novelist, essay writer and diplomat, Jaime Torres Bodet struggled for international social justice and against illiteracy. He promoted the reconstruction of the educational system, reinforced the importance of the Organization in the world, encouraged the access of women to education, and supported cultural development as a condition for international peace.
