The Yuste Foundation inaugurates the 9th Yuste International Encounters on Transitions tomorrow

The European and Ibero-American Academy of Yuste Foundation inaugurates a new edition of the academic training programme ‘Campus Yuste 2018’ with the 9th Yuste International Encounters on Transitions, which will take place during the 15th and 16th of March, at the Royal Monastery of Yuste.

This year, the title of the event will be “History Perspectives in View of Present Time Challenges”, where transitions towards democracy in Europe and Ibero-America and the different views of history in the face of current challenges will be focused on.
These encounters allow us, on the one hand, to draw from the growing perception that transitions towards democracy have become an essential example of our current political and social system in Spain as well as in Europe and, on the other hand, allow us to establish an assessment of the perception there is on Transitions in Spain, Europe and the world itself. In this edition, other transition processes will be addressed and compared within Spanish history as well as in other European and Ibero-American countries.

The seminar is jointly organised by the Yuste Foundation and the Present Time History Research Group of the History Department of the University of Extremadura and in cooperation with the County Councils of Cáceres and Badajoz, National Heritage, the Regional Government of Extremadura, and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) of the European Union.
