The Universidad de Salamanca and the Université Sorbonne Nouvelle – Paris 3 have been the cornerstones of the current cooperation project. For more than four years, they have developed regular teachers’ and students’ exchanges and have taken part in joint seminars, academic conferences and congresses. In 2010, they opened a bi-national program in Latin American studies that has strengthened the link between the Ibero-American Institute (Universidad de Salamanca) and the Institute of Latin American Studies – IHEAL (Université Sorbonne Nouvelle – Paris 3).
In 2012, this master’s programme evolved to an international master’s programme, extending the collaboration to the universities of Warsaw and Vienna. In 2015, Stockholm Universitet joined the consortium to strengthen its research and teaching in Latin American studies, with a strong will to collaborate with other European universities.
It has been a great experience, from an academic and professional as well as cultural and personal perspective. It encouraged us to move forward and promote the project of internationalisation in our structures, not only in theory but in concrete practices. All these efforts led to the creation of LAGLOBE Master’s degree in collaboration with Universidad de Salamanca, Stockholms Universitet and Université Sorbonne Nouvelle – Paris 3.
