Fr Roberto Jaramillo has been a Jesuit for 36 years and holds a PhD in Anthropology (EHESS/Paris). He worked for 18 years in the Amazonian region of Brazil, and is the former coordinator of the Social Apostolate for the Jesuits in Latin America.

At the public event, Fr Roberto will discuss some of the major social and political issues in Latin America. In particular, he will focus on how people are addressing the need for social change and just societies, and how the Jesuits are accompanying them in this process.
