Congress Venues: Buenos Aires and La Plata
The Congress will have two venues: the Cities of Buenos Aires and La Plata.
Buenos Aires is the Capital City of Argentina, seat of national bodies, the Executive, the Legislative Power and the
Supreme Court of Justice. According to data obtained in the latest census, carried out in 1990, it has 2.7 million
inhabitants; however, 14 million people -almost 40% of Argentinaís population - live within a range of 50 Km
surrounding Buenos Aires.
Buenos Aires was founded by Spanish colonizers in the XVI century, on the banks of the River Plate, the widest river
in the world, that is part of its boundary with the Republic of Uruguay. It is a modern city whose architectonic styles
give it a European appearance which, together with its own profile, its districts, streets and gardens, make it a
particularly attractive city.
The city of Buenos Aires is the most important cultural center in Argentina; the Buenos Aires National University
(U.B.A.), with 150,000 students, is the Stateís higher education center; besides, there are various confessional and
non-confessional private universities. The Colon Theater, the Fine Arts Museum and the National Library are symbols
of the Cityís culture.
The city has an intense cultural activity with public and private libraries, theaters, cinemas and auditoriums. It is also
a financial center, the most important in the country, and leading U.S., European and Asiatic banks have branches in
Buenos Aires. Subways, trains and buses, public and private cabs are its usual transportation means.
Furthermore, Buenos Aires has an intense commercial life, with outstanding stores - particularly those located on
Florida and Santa Fe streets, and attractive shopping centers, such as Patio Bullrich, Galerías Pacífico, Paseo Alcorta
and Alto Palermo. It also has many cafés, among which it is worth mentioning the typical ìTortoni Café on Avenida de
Mayo, ìLa Biela and Café Victoria, at the elegant ìRecoleta promenade and ìClásica y Moderna, located half a block
from the intersection of Córdoba and Callao avenues.
In Buenos Aires, it is worth visiting typical places where the universal ìArgentine tango is danced: Sunday afternoons
at the Dorrego Plaza in the San Telmo district, Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Caesar Park Hotelís lobby, and many
other tango places in San Telmo and other public squares in Buenos Aires, where visitors may enjoy tango all week
La Plata is the Capital City of the Province of Buenos Aires. It was founded in 1882 due to the need to solve a major
political problem for the country, i.e. to avoid the influence of the national authorities on the political life of the
provinces belonging to the federation of states and, particularly, the Province of Buenos Aires. Its creation has been
conventional in all respects.
Unlike other cities of the country, the layout of the City of La Plata has been well planned - its streets are numbered,
as in New York, and there is a square or green area every six streets. Almost all its streets are lined with trees and
its Civic Center, located at Plaza Moreno 12th through 14th streets, between 50th and 54th streets, comprises
buildings designed by German architects (the City Hall and the Cathedral).
According to data obtained from the 1990 census, the City of La Plata has 600,000 inhabitants and it has many
administrative buildings because it is the seat of the three powers of the Province of Buenos Aires. It harbors a stateuniversity - the National La Plata University, with 35,000 students, and a private university with 6000 students. Both
universities constitute La Plataís higher education centers.
La Plata has always been proud of its Natural Sciences Museum, at the Paseo del Bosque, that houses more dinosaurs
than the New York Natural History Museum. The Paseo del Bosque is a particularly beautiful and attractive site which
also comprises the Astronomic Observatory, the Walk of the Poets, the Zoo and the lake .
The City of La Plata has two business centers, at 8th and 12th streets. Although it is a large city, relations are still
personalized and it is easy to walk from one place to another. Beer saloon bars, coffee shops and restaurants around
its business centers and at the city gate, are the usual entertainment or meeting places when the working day is over.
Various cinemas and two theaters offer recreation possibilities.
Traveling to Argentina
By Airplane: U.S. airlines (American and United Airlines) and European and Latin American airlines, have daily, nonstop flights from capital cities to the ìGeneral Pistarini Ezeiza International Airport in Buenos Aires. Flying time from
New York to Buenos Aires is 10 hours and from European capital cites (Madrid, Rome, Paris, London, Frankfurt) 10-12
Flying time from Montevideo (Uruguay) is 40 minutes, from Asunción (Paraguay) 1 hour, from Rio de Janeiro (Brazil)
2h30, from Sao Paulo (Brazil) 2 hours, from Santiago (Chile) 1h20, from La Paz (Bolivia) 2 hours, from Lima (Perú) 4
hours, from Caracas (Venezuela) 7 hours, from Bogotá (Colombia) 5 hours, from Quito (Ecuador) 6 hours, from the
City of Mexico (Mexico) 8 hours.
There are also various daily flights connecting Miami, Florida (U.S.A.) and Buenos Aires (Argentina) and flying time is
about 8h30.
Ezeiza-Buenos Aires Distance: There is a 30 minute drive from the ìGeneral Pistarini Ezeiza International Airport to the
City of Buenos Aires and the following transportation means are provided:
a) Usually airlines provide a bus service for their passengers free of charge; it may be delayed because it is
necessary to wait for all passengers to pick up their baggage. Passengers arrive at the airlineís headquarters and
buses may make stops on the way, upon request.
b)A second alternative would be to request the services of a cab. In this case, there are two possibilities:
Once they have left the Migrations Office, arriving passengers see an office of the ìManuel Tienda Leon company,
where they can hire a cab; maximum delay is 10 minutes. Their baggage is carried from this office to the cab and the
cost of such service from Ezeiza to the heart of Buenos Aires is U.S.$ 35-45.
There are other cab services that do not have an office at the airport and the drivers invite passengers to hire them as
soon as they leave the Migrations Office door; you have to negotiate prices with them and, if you come to an
agreement, they will carry your baggage to the car. These cabs are slightly cheaper than the others and charge U.S.$
These costs include the turnpike toll but sometimes cab drivers request passengers to pay it. Therefore, it is
convenient to tell cab drivers that you will not be paying the toll before you start the trip.
Ezeiza-City of La Plata Distance: The only direct transportation option is by hiring a cab. It is a 1h05-1h15 drive and
the cab services are in the order of U.S.$ 60-75. It is necessary to tell the driver that he has to go by the road leading
to Monte Grande or, otherwise, by Camino Negro or Camino de Cintura, through Bridge 12.
There is also an alternative to reach La Plata by train or bus. In this case, passengers should move to the City of
Buenos Aires and take any of the transportation means that are mentioned below, in the ìBuenos Aires-La Plata
Transportation section.
Hotel Reservations
August is a very special month in Argentina. It is the beginning of the second university semester, after the Winter
holidays, and many national and international congresses and seminars are held at this time of the year.
Consequently, hotel reservations by March or Aprilí 97 are advisable. Participants will have the option to stay in the
City of Buenos Aires or in the City of La Plata.

Buenos Aires-La Plata Transportation
As the Congress will have two venues - La Plata and Buenos Aires, many participants will probably stay either in
Buenos Aires or La Plata. For their transportation, a daily free bus service will be leaving the School of Law and Social
Sciences of La Plata (48th between 6th and 7th streets) at 8.15 A.M. and returning to La Plata, from the School of Law
of Buenos Aires, at 8.30 P.M. and another free bus service will be leaving the School of Law of Buenos Aires at 8.30
A.M. and returning from the School of Law and Social Sciences of La Plata (48th between 6th and 7th streets) at 8.15
Those willing to travel by themselves, will have the following alternatives:
a) Regular Bus Lines
Expreso Río de la Plata: Bus arrivals and departures at La Plata Terminal Station, located at 4th street between 41st
and 43rd; in Buenos Aires: i) Retiro Station (Plaza de los Ingleses) (1 hour from and to La Plata), ii) Constitución
Station (1h10 from and to La Plata), iii) 9 de Julio Ave. in the intersection of Corrientes, Córdoba and Santa Fe
avenues (1h15-1h25 from and to La Plata) and iv) Plaza Once (1h30 from and to La Plata). Departures every 10-20
minutes from 5 A.M. to 1 P.M.
There are two types of buses : non-stop and regular buses, with intermediate stops. The above traveling times are
referred to non-stop buses.
The closest destination to the Congress venue in Buenos Aires is Retiro Station, only 15 minutes walk from the School
of Law.
Costera Criolla: It is the second bus company connecting La Plata with Retiro Station in Buenos Aires. Non stop or
charter buses and regular buses depart every 40 minutes or 1 hour, from 5 A.M. to 1 P.M. The trip takes 1-1h10.
Arrivals and departures at La Plata Terminal Station and inside the Bus Terminal Station (Retiro Station, Buenos
One-way tickets are U.S.$ 4.00 and round tickets U.S.$ 8.00. The cost of the bus to and from the Congress seats U.S.$ 1.00 each way - should also be considered. Participants may also travel from the Bus Station in Buenos Aires
and La Plata to the Congress venues by cab - considering two trips per day the cost would be U.S.$ 5.00.
The General Roca Railway runs regularly from La Plata to Buenos Aires and vice versa, with departures every twenty
minutes. Departures and arrivals at La Plataís railway station, 1st and 44th streets, and in Buenos Aires, at
Constitución Station. Traveling time is 1-1h10. The cost of a round trip is U.S.$ 3.50 and one-way tickets are U.S.$
2.00 each.
The Constitución Station is 30 minutes away, by bus, from the Congress venue in Buenos Aires, and the daily cost for
two trips is U.S.$ 3.00. Cabs take 20 minutes to reach the Congress venue and one-way fare is in the order of U.S.$
6.00. From suggested hotels to Constitución Station there is another alternative - the subway, only 10 minutes ride,
and the cost of a one-way token is U.S.$ 1.00.
c)Private and Public Cabs and Mini-Buses
Private and public cabs are available. The cost of a one-way trip is in the order of U.S.$. 40-45. Waiting time is
charged U.S.$ 5.00 per hour. Consequently, the cost of hiring a cab per day would be about U.S.$ 100.00.
Mini-buses are an interesting alternative. They have a maximum capacity for 8 passengers and daily cost of a round
trip is in the order of U.S.$ 90.00.
Social Events
The organizers are planning various social events to encourage relations between the participants in a pleasant
atmosphere and accompanying persons are cordially invited to participate:
a) The Welcome Dinner to be held on Sunday August 10 at 9.00 P.M.
b)The Asado Criollo Argentine barbecue party, where besides enjoying the exquisite Argentine traditional barbecue,
participants will have the chance to visit a Pampean ìestancia, a beautiful XIX century cattle-ranch. It will be a full-day
tour, on August 13. The trip to the cattle-ranch will be 1h30 from Buenos Aires or La Plata.
c)The Farewell Dinner will be held on Saturday August 16 at 9.00 P.M..
d)A Buenos Aires night-tour (August 12, as from 8.30 P.M.) and tours in the city of La Plata will be organized, to visit
the most attractive spots.
Tourist Information
Post-Congress Tours: Argentina, Chile and Uruguay are very attractive destinations for post-Congress tours. In
Argentina, we suggest the following tours that take 2, 3, 4 or 7 days:
a) Iguazú Falls
b) Argentine North-East Region
c) Mendoza and Santiago de Chile
d) Bariloche and San Martín de los Andes
e) Valdés Peninsula
f) Calafate, ìPerito Moreno glacier
g) Ushuaia
National tours, if combined with the purchase of the international ticket to Argentina, will have special rates including
destinations within Argentina.
Airline Rates: Ticket rates from U.S.A. or Europe may be surprising due to the fact that, depending on the time of the
year, it may be cheaper to buy tickets in Argentina or abroad. For comparison purposes, we list IBERIAís rates for
international flights from the places of origin to Buenos Aires, if tickets are bought in Argentina:
Frankfurt (U.S.$ 1,198), Berlin (U.S.$ 1,191), Hamburg (U.S.$ 1,191), Düsseldorf (U.S.$ 1,193), Madrid (U.S.$ 1,235),
Paris (U.S.$ 1,193), London (U.S.$ 1,260), Geneva (U.S.$ 1,141), Milan (U.S.$ 1,206), Rome (U.S.$ 1,205), Zurich
(U.S.$ 1,417), Amsterdam (U.S.$ 1,505), Brussels (U.S.$ 1,566), Vienna (U.S.$ 1,718). These rates include taxes in
the country of origin, taxes at Ezeiza airport and cost of transport.
Iberia is the company that has been awarded the privatization contract for ìAerolíneas Argentinas, the Argentine stateairline.
For post-congress tours or any other clarification concerning international ticket rates and the possibility to combine
them with domestic flights, we suggest that you contact the travel agent Hyspania Viajes S.R.L., San José 21, (1076)
Buenos Aires, Argentina. Fax and phone number: (54) (1) 384-8011.
Argentine Currency
The legal tender in Argentina is the Peso. One Argentine Peso ($ 1.00) is equivalent to one U.S. Dollar (U.S.$ 1.00). In
Argentina, there is a peso-dollar convertibility and you may use any of them indistinctly. Most stores, restaurants and
hotels accept payment in U.S. dollars.
During the last four years, the Argentine currency has been very stable with reference to the U.S. dollar and no
changes were recorded. As regards foreign exchange, dollars are easily exchanged for pesos at hotels. However,
banks offer a better rate of exchange for all foreign currencies.

As already announced in the last issue of the IVR Newsletter, the IVR Web Server and relative IVR Home Page have
been set up and are now working at the following Internet address:
The first Web section is devoted to setting up a file of all present and future IVR Newsletters to be consulted on line.
From now on‚ the newsletters will be available not only in the traditional hard copy format, but also as an electronic
file. National Sections will be able to access IVR Newsletters on Internet, print them or store them in file format for
the most widely used word processing programmes.
The second section of the IVR Web Page lists each IVR National Section and their relative Home Pages.
I have the pleasure of informing members that some National Sections (e.g. Japan and Germany) have already
started to update their own Home Pages. All members technically equipped to use Internet (and its own Web page)
are warmly invited to supply news and updates, or simply to contact other countries on line.
Let me remind readers that each National Section has been supplied with an electronic mailbox: the respective e-mail
addresses have already been sent to the national representatives by post. All National Section e-mail addresses are
available on the IVR Web page.
Last but not least, following repeated requests, the instructions on how to update National Section Web Pages
published in the last issue of the Newsletter are listed again below for readers' convenience.
A Web page devoted to the IVR has been set up on Internet at the URL:
The format of the IVR page is by now identical to the IVR Newsletter hard copy and is therefore divided into two main
areas: (a) "IVR News", "IVR Announcements" and "IVR Chronological Summaries and Reminders", (b) "National
Sections", divided in alphabetical order into as many Web pages as there are IVR National Sections and containing the
three items "News", "Announcements" and "Records" to be run directly by each National Section.
Each National Section will be allotted (i) its own page on Web and (ii) an account, i.e., the possibility of constant
access to the server via the network (using the Telnet or ftp protocols) to allow each National Section to set up its
own page, update it and transfer the same to the IVR Web server; (iii) an e-mail address. Should the National Section
already have its own e-mail address, all messages sent to the new address can be automatically redirected to the
existing address on request.
Each National Section shall update its own page as follows: (1) If the national representative is familiar with the HTML
programming and network file transfer techniques, he/she shall create three HTML pages in the directory
corresponding to his/her country (entitled "news.htm", "annou.htm", "records.htm"), update them as instructed below
and transfer the pages to the IVR server. (2) If the national representative is familiar with the HTML language and
hence able to set up to pages, but unable to transfer the files via the network, he/she can send the pages to the IVR
Web Master either (a) as an attachment to an e-mail message to [email protected], or (b) on disk. In either
case the Web Master will insert the pages in the network. (3) If the national representative has no access to network
technology, he/she can still send the pages to be inserted on a disk in Word or RTF formats.
Please note that the Web Master cannot transcribe hard copy for the Web pages.
National Sections Web page update. On updating the National Sections pages each national representative shall only
add information and not cancel data so that the Web Master can make regular two-monthly check on back-up
information. When the back-up is completed, each National Section will be informed by e-mail that its information can
be updated and the old pages cancelled. This back-up operation will serve to create an electronic IVR file alongside the
traditional hard copy file.
Future programmes. The IVR Web page will evolve from being a simple framework for the IVR Newsletter into an
electronic back-up file of each issue published. In addition, following the suggestions we hope to receive from the
various National Sections we will be able to create a myriad of future possibilities offered by the Internet network
(discussion lists, useful addresses and links, multimedial fora).
Any comments and/or suggestions on changing the format of the IVR Web page are welcome.

News. One of the main events of 1996 was the spring meeting of the Finnish National Section in March when the famous Italian
philosopher, professor Gianni Vattimo (Turin), addressed the public with a presentation entitled The Reconstruction of Rationality. Professor
Vattimo had attracted a considerable crowd of listeners, and so the meeting also turned out to be a success for the National Section in
informing the general public about its activities. Later in June, professor David M. Rasmussen (Boston College, USA) delivered a
presentation on current debates about justice entitled Rawls, Habermas and the Idea of Public Reason. In September, researcher Marina
Calloni (LSE, UK) presented a feminist critique of Habermas under the title Gender, Justice and Public Sphere.
Most of the resources of the National Section have this year been devoted to two national projects. The University of Helsinki hosts a
monthly lecture series entitled The Law of the Philosophers, organised in collaboration with the law students' association and the Institute
for Legal Theory. The series is mainly directed for students of law and philosophy as the official quota of the philosophy of law within the
curriculum has diminished drastically during the past few decades. With the series, the National Section also wishes to secure its continuity
by contributing to the education of a new generation of philosophers of law. This year the individual lectures are devoted to classics: Plato,
Aristotle, the Stoics, Locke, Rousseau, Kant and Hegel.
At the same time, the Finnish National Section and the Faculty of Law at the University of Turku have put together a lecture series entitled
"Ius Humanum" the life and work of Otto Brusiin, the "founding father" of Finnish philosophy of law. The lecturers include professor Aulis
Aarnio and professor Hannu Tolonen.
Recent and upcoming publications. Aulis Aarnio, Reason and Authority, Dartmouth, 1997. An anthology of Finnish philosophy of law, edited
by Aulis Aarnio, Ernesto Garzón Valdés and Jyrki Uusitalo, will be published in Spanish under the title La normatividad del derecho (Gedisa,
1997). Also the Otto Brusiin memorial lectures, including contributions by, e.g., Neil MacCormick and Carl Wellman, will be published by
Duncker & Humblot in 1997. The first issue of the review Associations will be out in March 1997.
Announcements. 26-28 September 1997, the Finnish National Section will organise together with the research project Domintern of the
University of Turku an interdisciplinary, Nordic symposium in Turku. The symposium is entitled Carl Schmitt- Philosophy, Law, Controversy,
and another famous Italian philosopher, professor Giorgio Agamben (Verona), is expected to deliver the key note address. Scandinavian
colleagues wishing for more details should communicate with the secretary of the Finnish National Section.

News.The 20th Congress of the Italian Society of Legal and Political Philosophy took place in Verona and at Hotel Residence Poiano, Poiano
del Garda, on October 3, 4, and 5, 1996. The subject, however, was apparently the least ìcelebratory and academic as possible, being
ìCriminal Law, Rationality Control, and the Legal Protection of Citizens. Furthermore, legal and political philosophers choose to invite experts
in criminal law, criminal procedure, civil procedure, and general theory of legal procedure, to get as much information and insight as
possibile from ìinsiders. Among the non-philosophers experts who lectured: Michele Taruffo (civil procedure, University of Pavia and Cornell
University), Giovanni Fiandaca (criminal law, University of Palermo, member of the Consiglio Superiore della Magistratura, the selfgoverning body of the Italian Judiciary), Gaetano Pecorella (President of the Italian Association of Criminal Lawyers and legal counsel in
many ìclean hands trials), Enzo Albano (judge, Court of Naples), Alessandro Margara (judge, Court of Florence). Among the professional
legal and political philosophers, presentations were held by Luigi Alfieri (University of Urbino), Francesco Cavalla (University of Padua, who
also organized the meeting together with Giuseppe Zaccaria, University of Padua), Paolo Comanducci and Riccardo Guastini (University of
Genoa), Mario Jori (University of Milan), Bruno Montanari (University of Catania), Anna Pintore (University of Cagliari), and Danilo Zolo
(University of Florence).
The ìinsider-side of the speakers focussed on criminal legal theory and the basic problems of the Italian criminal legal system. Particular
attention was paid to the reality of criminal trials, prisons and punishment, and some suggested ways-out from the ìclean hands
experience: the huge judicial campaign against political and economic criminality which turned the old Italian political establishment upside
down, and is still afoot.
The ìoutsider-side of the speakers, by contrast, focussed on judicial reasoning, legal syllogism, and the nature of legal discourse. The
presentations, however, were not academic at all (in the usual, derogatory, sense of the word). On the contrary, they were finely tuned to
the insidersí presentations, to provide participants with a real example of ìcommitted legal and political philosophy.
The final part of the meeting was devoted to the election of the new President of the Italian Society of Legal and Political Philosophy. Luigi
Lombardi Vallauri (University of Florence), the newly elected President, addressed the assembly with an inauguration speech, remarkable
indeed for the ambitious cultural targets which were openly pointed out for accomplishment. (report by P. Chiassoni).
