Argentinean Delegation of Young Professionals to Visit LLILAS

Posted: January 6, 2009

Since 2001, UT’s Teresa Lozano Long Institute of Latin American Studies has collaborated with Argentina’s Fundación Universitaria del Río de la Plata on a seminar that presents the broad scope of American life to a group of young Argentine professionals in law, government, journalism, and other public careers.

The FURP delegation consists of a competitively selected group of fifteen future leaders interested in learning about UT, Austin, the state of Texas, and the U.S. Participants come from all over Argentina, representing a variety of professions and reflecting a broad spectrum of political views. Most of our FURP visitors are lawyers or academics with interests in political economy, sociology, law, business, and international studies, among other disciplines.

The Fundación Universitaria Río de la Plata is a private nonprofit organization that was created in 1970 by young professionals with the purpose of contributing to the training of leaders and promoting dialogue within the framework of pluralism. The Fundación’s mission is to promote active participation in Argentina’s civil and political life.

The delegation will be visiting UT Austin from February 1–15, 2009. If you are interested in meeting with the group, please contact Paola Bueche at 512.232.2405.
