On this 28th edition, the RLE will participate with two symposiums and a workshop, where the role of the RLE in international and national policies will be analyzed and new perspectives will be provided. To this effect, the strengths and weaknesses of the different approaches will be addressed to have a better integration of the efforts of the involved parties.
