The Antonio Hernández Gil Foundation aims to raise awareness concerning the life and work of Antonio Hernández Gil as well as to disseminate the values which, as a citizen and as a jurist, he put at the service of Spanish society as it transitioned to a social and democratic state under the rule of law. These values include:
Fostering respect for the ideas of others, dialogue and self-criticism.
Peaceful coexistence and social responsibility as the means of personal and solidarity contribution to the common good.
Above any cultural, financial or geographical barriers, as a source of fundamental rights and obligations for the protection of citizens and groups in greatest need.
As transformative values, especially in the field of the legal sciences, for building a more united and just global society.
The Antonio Hernández Gil Foundation, which is non-partisan, pursues its aims by disseminating the life and values of its source of inspiration, and by promoting reflection on such values, whether directly or through volunteerism and collaboration with individuals and organisations with similar purposes.
