As of 1 January 2018, Javier Couso has been appointed part-time visiting professor at Utrecht University.

He will be based at SIM and also be connected to the Utrecht Centre for Global Challenges (UGlobe). Professor Couso, of the University Diego Portales in Chile, is an old friend of SIM, as he was previously based in Utrecht a few years ago as the Prince Claus professorial chair in development and equity. He is a specialist in the field of sociology of law and comparative law, with a focus on constitutional issues in Latin American countries including Chile, Mexico, Nicaragua and Peru. His areas of interest include judicial independence and human rights. We are very happy to welcome him back to Utrecht!
