The seminars were held by the Faculty of Law and were organized jointly by the University of Salamanca and the General Secretariat for International Cooperation.
One of the central themes of the seminars was corruption and how it hindered countries ability to boost their policies on health and education. The inaugural conference was led by the Secretary General of the Conference and Minister for Justice of Latin American Countries, Arkel Benitez. He believes that fighting corruption from smaller institutions such as municipalities is paramount. For this reason, he sought to enhance the role of justice. Doing this will require officials who will be ready to take a step forward and enhance justice and also increase its budget, he said.
Benitez asked to decentralize corruption and to counteract the influence of certain anthropological processes on our societies´ cultural patterns. He therefore believes that education on corruption plays a very important part in this change.
At the opening of the seminars I was accompanied by Professor Nicholas Rodriguez from the General Secretariat for International Cooperation and the Dean of the Faculty of Law, Ricardo Riveroy, as well as Arkel Benitez, the Secretary General of the General Conference on International Cooperation.
