After Miras’ visit, both institutions are expected to enter into an agreement for a double degree. The universities will continue working on joint research and publications, seminars, academic exchanges as well as a co-advising work with their faculty. Today, there are academic mobility opportunities for students of the Graduate Program in Law. However, the institutions are looking to expand to Law School alumni.
A long history of partnership with University of Granada
The partnership between Granada and PUCRS dates way back than the International Seminar that took place in Jan 2019, in partnership with Granada’s Department of Constitutional Law and other higher education institutions. A number of other professors from the Spanish institution have been on a mission at PUCRS. The partnership includes an internationalization research project involving FAPERGS / CAPES on the right of access to information. The project is expected to advance student exchange, seminars at PUCRS and Granada, and the joint publications.
