Sessions on Security and Defence in the Ibero-American Space

26 and 27 September 2023.  Faculty of Philosophy and Letters (Assembly Hall)

The European and Ibero-American Academy of Yuste Foundation aims to contribute to the promotion of democracy, respect for human rights, the promotion of peace and international harmony, as well as to the integral, harmonious, balanced and sustainable development of all peoples and nations of the world, especially through the promotion of culture, research, dissemination of knowledge and social integration.

The Ministry of Defence promotes the development of the culture of defence with the aim of making Spanish society aware of, value and identify itself with its history and with the solidarity and effective effort through which the Armed Forces safeguard national interests. The promotion of defence awareness and culture is a priority objective. Bringing Defence closer to the citizen is an essential part of the National Security culture as an instrument to achieve a committed society and an active part of its security.

The Ministry of Defence and the European and Ibero-American Academy of Yuste Foundation have been collaborating for years in the organisation of joint academic activities. These include the sessions on defence, which are particularly important and whose geographical areas of study are those of Europe and Ibero-America.

The European and Ibero-American Academy of Yuste Foundation organises the Sessions on Security in Ibero-America, under the umbrella of the SCHOOL OF GUADALUPE, with the aim of promoting dialogue on security and defence policy, including new threats and challenges of the international strategic scenario, paying special attention to Europe and Ibero-America, as well as the adaptation and response of the Armed Forces to new challenges.

The European and Ibero-American Academy of Yuste Foundation created the SCHOOL OF GUADALUPE to resume the role that the School of Salamanca played five centuries ago in the 21st century, illuminating the path of Spain in the New World and contributing to the formation of Ius Gentium and the defence of human rights. Inspired by the School of Salamanca, the School of Guadalupe focuses on reflecting and researching History and International Law as instruments to open new paths in equal cooperation between Europe and Ibero-America.


These sessions are open to the entire university community and to anyone interested.

Both sessions can be followed in person and online.
