BECKER, Silvio Eduardo; GAONA-FRANCO, Kitty  and  CANTOS, Josefa de la Rosa. The implementation of actions to strengthen the Office of International Relations at the Autonomous University of Asunción within the framework of PONCHO project. A case study. Rev. Int. Investig. Cienc. Soc. [online]. 2018, vol.14, n.2, pp.185-210. ISSN 2226-4000.

This article seeks to publicize the institutional actions of the Autonomous University of Asunción (UAA) within the framework of its participation in the PONCHO Project (Internationalization of peripheral Latin America universities through sustainable integration and the inclusive implementation of the International Relations´ Offices).The unit of analysis is the International Relations Office of the UAA. The methodology observes a qualitative approach, of descriptive type and analysis of documents, conciliating in a case study. The conclusions refer to an external microenvironment that proposes, as an example, the PONCHO project that, in addition to strengthening ties with European HEIs, strengthens cooperation ties between Latin American HEIs in this case: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay. It also refers to an internal microenvironment that shows us that the implemented actions are relevant and constitute a specific opportunity to promote internationalization in the UAA, improving opportunely the capacities in the technical, academic and institutional levels.

Keywords : Erasmus +; capacity building; internationalization; higher education; Paraguay.
