Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM)
The Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México is not only the largest university in Latin America, it is also one of the best and enjoys a good reputation worldwide. The IRTG's main Mexican partners include UNAM's Instituto de Investigaciones Sociales (IIS), the Instituto de Investigaciones Históricas (IIH) and the Centro de Investigaciones sobre América Latina y el Caribe (CIALC). All these institutions offer high-level doctoral programmes with a wide range of topics and methods. The programme of the IRTG benefits from the social, historical and literary topics discussed at the institutes of UNAM. The IRTG also cooperates with the faculty of economic history, which supplements the studies in economy at its German location.
