Organization profile

The seedbed seeks  to bring students from different faculties closer to contemporary discussions related to the State, its characteristics and the debates about its history and future. It aims to promote critical thinking, based on an argumentation that has the most relevant sources on topics such as: the theory of democracy, the theory of law, political philosophy, among others. Additionally, it seeks to strengthen the investigative character through the writing of articles of reflection for academic publications.

Methodology of work*: The seedbed meets on a weekly basis, functioning as a space for dialogue between students and professors on previously agreed readings that address issues of the Theory of the State, Law and Political Philosophy. At the same time, it promotes the participation of its members by motivating and guiding them to lead the sessions, present their research contributions (papers) and initiate discussions from an interdisciplinary perspective. The aim is to produce, every six months, a written production with an academic vocation for publication in a national or international indexed journal. Likewise, participation is encouraged and promoted in spaces that would make scientific production visible, such as conferences, colloquiums and/or congresses. In accordance with the educational project of the faculty, it is expected that the investigative character of the seedbed will be a favorable space for the advising and realization of degree works of interested students.
