SIT Study Abroad: Social Movements in Argentina
- Buenos Aires
View Other Details
Discover the diverse social movements and struggle for human rights in Argentina on this program.
Argentina is a country renowned for heroic efforts against impunity, economic disenfranchisement, and social exclusion. Central to its history are the immigrant movements of the late 1800s, Peron’s populist surge in the mid-20th century, and the military regime of the late 20th century that resulted in tens of thousands of disappearances. Argentina’s economic crisis in 2001 sparked action by new social movements working for economic advancement and social justice.
Located in the vibrant capital city of Buenos Aires, this program examines Argentina’s prolific and highly dynamic social movements. The program’s office is in one of the most renowned research institutions in Buenos Aires, the Centro de Estudios de Estado y Sociedad (CEDES). Students have the chance to interact with CEDES scholars and use the institution’s library and other resources.
