South-North Exchange (SNX)

The South-North Exchange on Theory, Culture and Law (SNX) celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2013 and is designed to bring together critical theorists from various disciplines and regions of the hemisphere (and beyond) to discuss problems in the application of theory to current social problems and policy issues. The basic concept is to create a venue focused on south-north relations, and on issues that affect or constitute south-north polarities, to strengthen LatCrit theory and praxis in hemispheric terms. This annual encounter convened for the first time in mid-December 2003, and has met annually since then at the campus of the IAUPR School of Law in San Juan, Puerto Rico an other venues in Latin America to focus critical attention on various substantive themes ranging from constitutional reform to the rights of indigenous people.
