Thinking Chile and Latin America: Sharing Ideas in Edinburgh 2019 has the aim to reinforce The University of Edinburgh as a centre of thinking and development, to promote new and innovative knowledge for the development of Chile and Latin America through a strong networking based on a multidisciplinary perspective. The aim of the seminars is to provide a space for sharing and disseminating ideas grounded on high quality research carried out by Chilean and Latin American students and researchers in the UK, as well as the creation of links in an environment of companionship and cooperation.
