The cooperation of the newly established 8th RLC campus and the National University of Cordoba, serving as host, was commenced on April 19th 2016. This collaboration will amplify the academic exchange on questions regarding human rights, social justice and environmental protection between the campus and the University. Founded in 1613, the UNC has a long history of advocating democracy and human rights with its students launching a movement for a democratisation of academic faculties in Argentina in 1918.
The UNC is home to more than 100 research centres, 25 libraries, 17 museums and 2 astronomy observatories. The RLC campus will be hosted by the University’s Faculty of Psychology which has more than 10 000 students enrolled. The RLC global network is looking forward to many exciting synergies and research projects to result from the interaction of Laureates of the Right Livelihood Award and students at the RLC Cordoba.
