This project is coordinated by Drs. Silvia Ferabolli and Veronica Gonçalves. PROMERI is an extension program that aims to structure a support network for students of the undergraduate course in International Relations (IR) in the construction of their academic trajectory at UFRGS. PROMERI involves master's and doctoral students from the Strategic International Studies Program (PPGEEI), as well as professors from the Department of Economics and International Relations (DERI). PROMERI's objective is to support the academic development and professional insertion of students who entered the International Relations course through the entrance exam, with places reserved based on ethnic-racial and socioeconomic criteria.
