In this area, deep analysis and reflection are encouraged in those disciplines where the human thought (philosophy), the study of languages (Language and Literature), the legacy of the past (history), the understanding of the religious phenomenon (Theology), and the expression of artistic spirit (Art and Aesthetics) manifest.

With the aim of educating people, citizens, and professionals of excellence, it especially fosters reflection on human action (Ethics) and concern for morality and customs.

El Congreso de los Estados Unidos y el gobierno militar peruano, 1968-1975 (“The United States Congress and the Peruvian military government, 1968-1975”)

Researcher (es) : norberto barreto velázquez

Research area : Humanities

The project seeks to fill the void in the study of Peruvian-American relations to analyze the role played by the US Congress key institution to its political system during one of the hottest periods in the history of bilateral relations: The Revolutionary Government of the Armed Forces. For its leftist and nationalist character, the regime of Juan Velasco Alvarado adopted an anti-imperialist discourse that led to an interesting confrontation with the government of the United States. He expropriated several US corporations, including the International Petroleum Company (IPC), the most notorious case during that time. In this part of the story, researchers have paid little attention to diplomatic and international elements, especially to the interaction of the Peruvian military with the US government. In this regard, the project will contribute to the development of two lines of research: the analysis of Peruvian-US relations and the study of the role of the Congress in the development of the US foreign policy.

Evolución de las redes corporativas peruana, 1940-2010 (“Evolution of Peruvian corporate networks, 1940-2010”)

Researcher (es) : martín alberto monsalve zanatti

Research area : Humanities

A corporate network is defined by the positions that companies share in the directories of other firms. This research suggests that, despite some public role of business associations, Peruvian corporate network has lost cohesion in the last twenty years. For the first time you can find business groups that share fewer or no directors with companies of the other groups. However, the centrality has settled in the network of the financial sector. In this context, the problem is to understand how the Peruvian business community has organized itself in time, assuming that firms seek to relate to each other for individual and collective benefits. This research also seeks to meet entrepreneurs and major companies to have a local business profile and know the importance and the role that certain business institutions in Peru have, such as economic groups and business associations.
