On the 40th anniversary of the Malvinas War, the LSESU Argentina Society wishes to make different aspects of the Malvinas question visible.

To this end, we have prepared this event to speak about the past, present and future of this conflict.

The event will go over the historic aspects of the Malvinas question and cover the current positions and the petitions made by Argentina at the United Nations Special Committee on Decolonization. It will also reflect on the necessity for negotiations in accordance with the principles of international law.

We will also hear about the experience of an Argentine war veteran.

This will be an online event with live interpretation. You can choose to join the discussion both in English and Spanish. After signing up, you’ll receive all the details on how to join our Zoom discussion.

We hope you can join us at this important event!
