Last december 8, 2016, the Director of the Institute of Latin American Studies, Andrés Rivarola, was invited to participate in a seminar arranged by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs with the participation of representatives from the Latin American and Caribbean embassies in Stockholm.

The objective of this event was to present and analyze possibilities for increased academic exchange between the Latin American and Caribbean countries and Sweden. Representatives from the Swedish Council for Higher Education and the Swedish Institute presented several possibilities that Sweden offers to further develop the relations between Sweden and Latin America in this sense.
