The Professor Uría Foundation collaborated in the project that received the Innovation and Social Justice award jointly with Uría Menéndez in the FT Innovative Lawyers Awards 2021. The award was for pro bono advice provided in connection with the demise of a young woman from the Democratic Republic of the Congo at the Centro de Internamiento de Extranjeros (CIE) in Madrid in 2011, which enabled her family to secure an acceptance by the State of its liability for the death in November 2020.

In 2020, the Spanish Committee for Refugee Aid (CEAR) named the Professor Uría Foundation a “refuge organisation” in recognition of our volunteers’ work in protecting the fundamental rights of asylum seekers in Ceuta and Melilla.
