Externado will host the 2018 Mercedes Rodrigo Chair

The event, which annually brings together the majority of psychology programs in the country, will hold its thirteenth version at our House of Studies.

For 2018, the central theme will be “Coexistence and Ethics,” relating to the peace agreement signed in Havana, Cuba, between the National Government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC).

The event, consisting of 15 sessions, will generate a space for debate and analysis of the peace agreement new scenarios for coexistence, viewed from a psychology perspective.

With the above goal, researchers, scholars, experts in ethics, reconciliation, forgiveness, coexistence, education for peace, and bioethics will convene. Participants include Universidad de los Andes and Externado University professors, as well as recognized national and international speakers on psychology issues.

Psychology students from all universities, members of the Asociación Colombiana de Facultades de Psicología (ASCOFAPSI) (Colombian Association of Psychology Faculties) may attend the Mercedes Rodrigo Chair.

The sessions are structured around a speaker and one or two commentators who will discuss the ideas addressed. The Chair sessions will be held on Saturdays, during the University academic period.

Also, to be analyzed are the peace process implications on the work performed by psychologists in the country.

It is the first time our House of Studies will host this important Chair. All sessions are face-to-face. However, they will be transmitted via Webinar.

Opening session: Saturday, February 3, 2018, Externado de Colombia University.
