Sixth edition of the Freedom Forum


On October 24, the sixth session of the UCEMA Freedom Forum will be held, a virtual space designed for rotating groups of intellectuals to debate diverse and transcendental issues, escaping from the classic debate of the current situation that prevents thinking in the long term. The meeting will be held under the title "Las Políticas de Nudging y sus Consecuencias para la Libertad Individual" (The Nudging policies and their Consequences for Individual Freedom)

As always, the forum will be coordinated by the committee formed by Alberto Benegas Lynch (h), Julio Elías, Martín Krause and Edgardo Zablotsky, who will also participate in the sessions. The moderator will be Dr. Zablotsky, in his capacity as President of UCEMA. With regard to the guests, this session of the Forum will include the participation of Guillermo Cabieses, Iván Carrino, Walter Castro, Adrián Ravier, Ayelén Sánchez.
