It’s now just over a month before we gather in Mexico City for the next renewal of the IAMCR Academic Conference to be held at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) from July 21 to 24, 2009.
Tenangos: the IAMCR Conference's bags, embroidered by hand!
Ford Foundation has joined to our Conference, by financing the bags that will be provided to the attendees. These bags are produced by craftswomen specialized in embroideries named Tenangos. With this project, we pretend to promote the work of these women from the community of San Nicolas, belonging to Tenango de Doria Municipality, Hidalgo, located in the Mexican Otomí region. The construction of the network with this group of women was obtained thanks to the support of the Government of Hidalgo State, through the Hidalgo International Corporation.
Hotels and Hostels
Special rates for participants in hotels/hostels of different categories!
It is most appropriate that the 2009 IAMCR conference in Mexico takes human rights as its focus. Human rights have become a key theme in political, social and economic development around the world, often recognised as much in their breach as in their application.
Mexico City has over 670 years of history and a very rich cultural life. On the city’s great central square, the Zócalo, the Cathedral is the oldest in the Americas, and this city boasted the first printing press in the Americas. The city center is distinguished by fine boulevards, beautiful parks, splendid museums, and a variety of eateries. The city is 2200 metres/almost 7000 feet above sea level, yielding a July climate of around 21 Celsius/70 Fahrenheit in the day, though somewhat cooler in the evening. Atmospheric pollution has greatly diminished over the past two decades from its former level. 20 million people live in the city, but the city as a whole consists of the central city and seven other urban centers such as Cuernavaca which ring the center, with green belts separating it from them.
