Facing Cultural Diversity : Uruguayan & Central European Experience


The international colloquium is held under the auspices of the Ambassador of the Slovak Republic Mr. Rastislav Hindický.


The different historical experiences of dealing with cultural diversity in Uruguay and Central European Slovakia are approached as a source of mutual learning for teaching and research professionals from both regions. Two areas of common interest will be addressed in the context of the social and cultural background of our higher education systems:

  1. Similarities and differences in the cultures of Slovakia and Uruguay
  2. How interculturalism is implemented in our higher education systems?
  3. How our common historical heritage of Jesuit education helps to deal with intercultural challenges?
