As part of this, participants engaged with each another and with faculty about a current research project. The Workshop concluded with a one-day Conference addressing crucial issues of contemporary world political economy convened by UCM Rector Carlos Andradas.

This initiative built on the close link between Harvard and Complutense University forged more than twenty-five years ago through the establishment of the Real Colegio Complutensea joint venture by our two universities. IGLP’s new relationship with the Complutense Institute for International Studies further extends and enriches this collaboration.

The global Workshop was generously hosted and sponsored by Banco Santander, through Santander Universitieswhich has long been a friend and sponsor of the Institute and our Workshop, supporting our growing global network of innovative academics working on the most pressing issues of global law and policy. Santander Universities maintains a stable alliance with close to 1,200 academic institutions in 21 countries. The bank has been collaborating with Complutense University since 1997 and Harvard Law School since 2010. We are pleased to bring the Workshop they joined us in establishing six years ago home to Madrid.
