Seminario en Latinoamérica de Teoría Constitucional y Política (SELA)—Rio de Janeiro , Brazil

Yale Law School

Yale Law School Latin America Legal Studies will present the Seminario en Latinoamérica de Teoría Constitucional y Política—The Seminar in Latin America on Constitutional and Political Theory (SELA), in Rio de Janeiro on June 11–14, 2015. The focus of this year’s seminar is about inequality, with panels discussing equal access to resources, inequality and criminal sanctions, and unequal consequences of violent conflict.

SELA is an annual gathering in Latin America of top legal scholars from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Paraguay, Perú, Puerto Rico, Spain and the United States.  Papers are written for the seminar in English and Spanish or Portuguese and are published in a Spanish-language book following the discussions.

Inaugurated in August 1995, SELA was created to help deepen the understanding of complex theoretical issues, to model a more discussion-oriented form of intellectual discourse than is the norm in Latin America, and to create a venue for the formation of a professional community. Now an intellectual center of gravity in the region, the seminar provides leading researchers from across the Americas opportunities to learn from and collaborate with other experts who share their commitment to democratic principles and values.
