Researchers and students from the Netherlands and Chile in conversation

The event brings together researchers from Leiden en Diego Portales University together in an interactive discussion with students. The lectures of this mini-series focus on the socio-political challenges our society is facing. Should you be interested in knowing more about how Dutch and Chilean researchers approach these common challenges, save this mini-series in your agenda.

Unique format

Instead of the usual organization of a sequence of individual presentations, the panel seeks to create a space for meeting, dialogue, and informal and horizontal exchange between the participants about the processes of change (socio-political, governmental, scientific and educational) our societies are witnessing.

Target groups

Bachelor and masters students,PhD candidates, as well as staff members interested in social and political change in general, and in Latin America in particular. 

The lectures will be simultaneously translated into English and Spanish. You can find more information about Language Interpretation on the zoom support website.
