Proyectos Especiales y Actividades de Capacitaci贸n para Latinoam茅rica
Latinoam茅rica conforma un amplio territorio que se extiende desde el r铆o Bravo hasta los confines australes de Am茅rica, en el que fluyen exuberantes los dones de la naturaleza, pero que concomitantemente constituye el lugar m谩s violento del planeta. Campean en algunos de sus 谩mbitos acciones de violencia de distinta naturaleza y magnitud, as铆 como tragedias migratorias, todo ello impulsado por las desigualdades sociales, las carencias econ贸micas y otros graves problemas estructurales. Todo ello ha impuesto la necesidad de reservar a este espacio geogr谩fico y cultural, especiales actividades acad茅micas dirigidas a auditorios mayoritariamente latinoamericanos o referidas a cuestiones que, en el contexto de las tem谩ticas del Instituto, pudieran resultarle de mayor especificidad.
