Dr. William Smith from the University of Miami visited Uruguay July 27 - August 3, 2005.

The United States Embassy Montevideo sponsored the July 27 to August 3 visit of Dr. William Smith, professor of Political Science and International Studies at the University of Miami.

During his visit, Dr. Smith conducted a variety of seminars and lectures at the University of the Republic on the rise of transnational groups opposed to globalization. He demonstrated a methodology for classifying these groups and showed why some groups have influenced the direction of globalization while some of the more vocal parts of the protest movement have had little impact.
