Project: Research Project

Project Details


The purpose of the project is to analyze the teaching of the law of nations in the Faculty of Jurisprudence in the eighteenth century from the materials available both virtually and physically from the Historical Archive of the Universidad del Rosario.

The general objective of the research project is to analyze, from the study of the teaching materials of the Faculty of Jurisprudence of the Universidad del Rosario in the eighteenth century, what characteristics marked the teaching of international law at the time and to what extent it differs from the education provided today.

The specific objectives include the determination of what contents and materials were prioritized in the teaching of international law, why some were prioritized over others, whether there was a local or regional identity that marked the teaching of the law of nations and whether education was permeated by the Catholic Church and the Kingdom of Spain, taking into account that Colombia was part of the Viceroyalty of New Granada at the time.
