The award, which included a cash prize of 6,000 euros, was presented to her by Minister of Justice, Rights and Memory Gemma Ubasart in an institutional event which took place on 17 January.

The Catalan Ministry for Justice, Rights and Memory presents these awards yearly to public administrations or professionals and private entities as a way to distinguish the best theoretical research projects and practical experiences developed in mediation and other conflict-resolution methods. Awards also go to the best publications and communication and dissemination actions conducted in this sector.
