During the event seven main areas concerning Higher Education in Latin America were debated from a critical perspective. Regarding globalization, according to the author, during the event "the effects of the cultural 'worldization'" were analyzed, and it was stated that "planetary citizenship is a blurred topic" that can promote cultural homogenization, and that therefore, there was a need of the promotion of a critical intercultural approach.
