Human Rights and Transitional Justice in Rosario

Transitional justice is an emerging field of law and inter-disciplinary academic study. Latin America has been at the forefront of the transitional justice movement since the early 1980s, and countries such as Argentina, Uruguay, and Peru continue to serve as models for other societies seeking a peaceful post-conflict transition. Similarly, Latin American countries and regional institutions have been pioneers in the development of culturally specific human rights laws, practices, and institutions. The promotion of human rights, from both an international and domestic perspective, provides the foundation for all transitional justice movements. Therefore, combining the study of human rights with transitional justice is necessary. Teaching human rights and transitional justice requires an interdisciplinary perspective that includes an emphasis on law, politics, history, and culture. Latin America, and South America in particular, is a perfect setting for studying these important topics.

The goal of the program is for students to build a general foundation in the fields of international human rights and transitional justice, supplemented by case study approaches to the Inter-American human rights system, human rights law, and various transitional justice mechanisms (e.g. trials and truth commissions) undertaken by Argentina and its neighbors.

Spanish Language in Oviedo

Oviedo sits at the  foot of the Aramo mountains, just 23 miles from Spain’s northern “green” coast.  Historically, the city dates to the tenth century  it was the capital of the Asturian Kingdom and an important stopover point on the Camino de Santiago.  Today, Oviedo has an urban design which promotes equity and inclusion in historic sites, public squares, car-free livable streets and a culture public gathering places, sidewalk cafes, markets and bars. It has a reputation for being one of the safest and cleanest cities Spain, offering great quality of life for our students. The hospitality and warmth of the Asturian people coupled with the absence of mass tourism and low presence of English speaking visitors in the region are the keys to Oviedo’s strength as a student learning environment for cultural and linguistic immersion.  During the summer months there are numerous festivities and special events held in Oviedo and nearby locations. 

Enroll in one or both of the four-week intensive Spanish language sessions offered in July and August. You may earn up to one year of Spanish language credit for enrolling in both sessions. Classes are offered at the beginning through advanced levels, and are taught in Spanish by experienced professors from the University of Oviedo. The focus is primarily on Spanish language development with attention to writing, listening and speaking. In addition, intermediate and advanced students can choose from several elective special topics during the last hour of class that focus on aspects of Spanish society, culture and civilization.
