Forum Latin America


The aim of the Max Planck Law Forum Latin America is to communicate across Latin America the work and activities of Max Planck Law as well as the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies (Cologne). One of the main objectives of Max Planck Law is to connect with young researchers at doctoral and postdoctoral level, as well as legal researchers more generally. To this end, the forum will disseminate the various activities of Max Planck Law pertaining to Latin American law and society, such as workshops, seminars, symposia, research results, new international publications, etc. The forum will also promote diverse mechanisms of selection, exchange, and training for researchers, through scholarship programmes, summer schools, seminars, tandem groups, and other activities that enable the direct exchange of knowledge between researchers and Max Planck Law. Excellence is thereby guaranteed in selecting and connecting with Latin American scholars. In addition, the forum will stimulate growth in the legal and social sciences across both spaces through the cross-fertilization of perspectives, themes, and ways of meeting the challenges of the twenty-first century.

Due to COVID-19,  the inaugural conference originally scheduled to take place in Bogotá and Buenos Aires in March/April 2020 has been postponed until further notice.
