The forum was inaugurated by the general director of Casa América, Enrique Ojeda. With its participation and collaboration in events like these, the URJC shows that it is “very committed to relaunching relations between Latin America and Europe. One of our interests in internationalization is to act as a bridge between the two sides of the Atlantic”, concludes María Luisa Humanes.
