Project at Faber —

In this Thematic Residence “Policies of Diversity” I’m going to work about  the challenges presented by political and social transformations of access to information including their impact on individuals and society. The exercise of the right to access public information becomes effective through investment in public policies, which broaden the actions of the State in programs to support information policies, generating an increase in the interaction between the State and civil society. This Residency Program is going to support the expansion of knowledge through actions and expand the diversity in the university environment.
