Pre-Texts in Paraguay
The Development Institute (Instituto Desarrollo, ID) in Paraguay was awarded a USAID grant to strengthen Paraguayan higher education institutions to improve the rule of law, decrease corruption and increase support for democracy. As part of this project, ID has partnered with Cultural Agents to use Pre-Texts as a training platform to establish a culture of accountability and creativity across Paraguayan organizations and rule of law institutions.
From May to September 2020, Cultural Agents, featuring Human Rights expert Marco Abarca, will provide technical assistance and training to law school faculty and department chairs in Paraguay. The Cultural Agents course will consist of five webinars on issues related to combining arts and research in the service of civic development. The seminars will form a foundation for future Pre-Texts trainings and workshops in Paraguay.
