The Latin America Rectors Summit

In order to streghten the ties between Israel and Latin American countries, the newly founded Latin American Ambassadors Forum initiated a new summit. This came as part of the Forum's decision to launch an academic conference and bring rectors of universities from all over Latin America to the Hebrew University in order to strengthen ties between the countries and universities, and promote collaboration. Following the activities of the BDS movement and the rise in protests against Israel on campuses around the world, the Truman Research Institute for the Advancement of Peace initiated the annual summit with Latin American countries to promote a true image of the Israeli people and country. Twenty rectors arrived to Israel, from 14 countries - Argentina, Uruguay, Costa Rica, Brazil, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Chile, Bolivia, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Honduras, Paraguay, Peru, and Venezuela.
