The Portuguese political-legal structure and its historical evolution will be analysed by experts from Spain and Portugal

Yuste’s academician and President of the Portuguese History Academy, Manuela Mendoça, will give the keynote speech

The European and Ibero-American Academy of Yuste Foundation and the University of Extremadura organise the Hispanic-Portuguese Seminar “Introduction to Portuguese History and Public Law”, which will take place during the 3rd and 4th of October at the Faculty of Philosophy and Literature, in Cáceres. The Seminar attempts to foster mobility or university community exchange through the attainment of better knowledge concerning cross border problems and to enhance greater cultural awareness concerning the neighbouring country’s legal and historical (ius historical) reality and knowledge concerning its current constitutionality and legal-institutional culture as well as its historical foundations.

Extremadura’s development has permanently been influenced by the evolution of its cross border relations with Portugal and by the level of knowledge and understanding between these two peoples. This is why a Hispanic-Portuguese Seminar on History and Law, in order to establish the analysis, debate, and the presentation of the current Portuguese political structure, its historical roots and evolution as study topics, is organised.

Yuste’s academician and President of the Portuguese History Academy, Manuela Mendoça, will give the keynote speech entitled “An Approach to Portuguese History until 1910”.

Issues, such as the “Portuguese historical reorientation from 1910” will subsequently be tackled by the Contemporary History Professor at the University of Évora, Fernando Martins or “An Introduction to the Portuguese Constitutional Law” will be dealt with by Public Law Professor at Lisbon’s Lusíada University and at the Polytechnic Institute of Lisbon, José Lucas Cardoso.

In addition, History and Law doctoral students participating in the event will actively contribute in the morning and afternoon sessions.

The Hispanic-Portuguese Seminar on History and Law is constituted by the University of Extremadura’s History of Law and Administrative Law Areas and the History Department.
