Join the Arqus Human Rights Café on Southern Democracies!
|28 Nov 2023
The Student Engagement Team from the University of Padua (SET Padova) invites Arqus students and staff to participate in the Human Rights Café “Making Southern European democracies work” by joining its three special sessions on the quality of democracy in Italy, Spain and Portugal.
SET Padova was awarded fundings from the Arqus Alliance through their call for Students’ co-designed projects to host a transnational edition of the Human Rights Café on the topic of the quality of Southern democracies. The cafés consist of informal meetings that bring together bachelor, master and doctoral students, graduates, professors, professionals and citizens who are interested in human rights, regardless of their field of studies and their level of education, in order to have a discussion about human rights-related topics.
Students from the Universities of Granada, Minho and Padua are organising the three cafés in their respective universities. The meetings are set to allow participants to engage in a critical and comparative conversation about the way these democracies evolved after their 20th century dictatorships and following their membership in the European Union.
The first event will take place today, 28th November, from 14:30 to 18:00 CET at the library of “Centro di Ateneo per i Diritti Umani Antonio Papisca”, Via Beato Pellegrino, 28 (Padua).
The café in Granada, which follows the café at the University of Padua, will take place on 1st December from 16:00 CET at the Law Library of the University of Granada (-1 floor). Registrations are now open trough the following link.
The third café will be hosted by the University of Minho on 4th December from 14:30 to 18:30 CET at the Room I.05/CP3 (Campus of Gualtar in Braga). Please, register here.
