Educación superior católica y globalización en América Latina: Reunión de Porto Alegre, Brasil, 6-8 de abril de 2006

Catholic Higher Education and Globalisation in Latin America: Porto Alegre Meeting (Porto Alegre, Brazil, April 6-8, 2006)
From the 6th to the 8th April, the challenges and the possibilities of Catholic Higher Education in a globalised world was the object of discussions and reflections by seventy Catholic university directors from the different countries of Latin America and the Caribbean, at the PUCRS (a university directed by the Marist Brothers of Porto Alegre, Brazil). The meeting, organised by the International Federation of Catholic Universities (IFCU), had as its central theme: “From Rome to Porto Alegre 2002-2006 – Catholic Higher Education and Internationalisation in Latin America”. The objective was to continue to deepen a debate started four years ago in the Vatican, by highlighting the consequences of internationalisation, especially in the Latin American nations.
