Two areas of common interest will be addressed in the context of the social and cultural background of our higher education systems:
- Similarities and differences in the cultures of Slovakia and Uruguay
- How interculturalism is implemented in our higher education systems?
- How our common historical heritage of Jesuit education helps to deal with intercultural challenges?
