Furthermore, the role that companies, NGOs and international organizations can play to ensure human security will also be discussed. A cross-cultural perspective, comparing the African, Latin America and Europe methods will be offered.
For the first edition 10 students from DIREITO RIO will be selected. Tilburg University will finance accommodation, breakfast and lunch.
