As part of the launch of the new Undergraduate Program in Philosophy, Politics and Economics, the Faculty of Human Sciences inaugurated the conference cycle "Intersecting Philosophy, Politics and Economics". Throughout the academic year, PPE students attend academic sessions where they get in touch with renowned personalities in the core subjects of the Program. In these sessions, political, economic and social issues that mark the national and international media agenda are discussed.
