President Nestor Kirchner Fellowship Public Lecture given by Lucila Rosso
The President Nestor Kirchner Fellowship is inspired by the legacy and achievements of former President Néstor Kirchner during his term as President of Argentina (2003-2007), coupled with his important work as the first Secretary General of UNASUR (2010). In its first year, the Fellowship received 103 applications from nine countries in South America. Based on the decision made by a committee of over 50 experts from their respective fields in academia and public service from North and South America, three finalists were chosen to take part in the first year of the Fellowship.
This fall, The New School is accepting its first Fellow, Ms. Lucila Rosso, from Argentina. Ms. Rosso holds a Law degree from Universidad de Buenos Aires and is a Master in International Relations and Negotiations candidate from the Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales (FLACSO), Universidad de San Andrés and Universidad de Barcelona. She worked at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, the Security Ministry and the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights. Her winning essay was entitled "The Determinants in the Debt Relief with the IMF: The Debt Prepayment of Argentina and Brazil."
In her Public Lecture, Ms. Rosso will be presenting her work to The New School community, which will include elements of what she has learned during her Fellowship in New York City.
