Sustainability

Sustainability

Students can study empirically how Argentina and Uruguay are trying to slash their carbon footprint by obtaining electricity from clean energy, building on biomass, wind, solar and hydroelectric power and attracting foreign investors lured either by credible long-term commitment by the state, innovative financing schemes or international guarantee mechanisms.

Identity and society in Uruguay

Identity and society in Uruguay

Students at IEA come to understand from multiple perspectives the identity of the Afrodescendants in Uruguay who constitute around 10% of the population and play an important role in the culture and national folklore through Tango and Candombe, which is part of UNESCO’s cultural heritage list.

Economics in Argentina

Economics in Argentina

Argentina has one of the most unique economies in the world. Once one of the world’s richest economies, Argentina suffered a slow but steady decline and is now considered a frontier or emerging market at best. Cycles of inflation, public and private debt, state intervention and dependency on external factors have led to an economy that is a mecca for economists and historians.
