Free courses on ethnic-racial relations and open finance offered in area of law
Fundação Getulio Vargas’ Rio de Janeiro Law School will offer undergraduate students complementary short courses on ethnic-racial relations and open finance as of October. These courses are open to both Rio de Janeiro Law School students and those at other higher education institutions. The application deadline is October 9. The classes will take place in person in FGV’s main building in Rio de Janeiro (Praia de Botafogo, 190, Botafogo).
One of the courses is called “Rights in Ethnic-Racial Relations: Reflections on the Rights of Descendants of Runaway Slaves and Afro-Brazilian Heritage.” It will look at issues related to ethnicity and racism in Brazilian institutions and society. The meetings will be held on October 20, October 27, November 3, November 10 and November 17. In all, there will be 10 hours of classes.
The other course is called “Inside Open Finance: Financial and Insurance Regulation, Technology and Data Protection.” The goal is to promote wide-ranging discussion with students about the implementation of Open Finance (encompassing Open Banking and Open Insurance) in Brazil. This regulatory movement was initiated by the Brazilian Central Bank in order to expand and democratize the use of financial services in the country.
Through this program, the school aims to help students understand the new regulatory frameworks adopted in the finance and insurance sectors, as well as the relevance of technology, fintechs and Brazil’s new General Data Protection Law. The meetings will be on October 28, November 4, November 11, November 18 and November 25. In all, there will be 10 hours of classes.
