Sebastián has taught at the University Externado of Colombia courses on general Administrative law at the law school and Principles of Administrative law at the school of accounting. He has also taught at postgraduate level courses relating to public procurement.

Current Research

His research focuses on the interface between public procurement objectives and the legal regime of the management stage. In broad terms, his research aims to identify considerations that national and international regulatory bodies could take into consideration in deciding whether and how to deal with the management stage of public contracts, focusing on modification and termination of contracts. The research will draw on case studies to be undertaken in four national jurisdictions: England and Wales, United States of America, France, and Colombia. The international regulatory frameworks that will be taken into consideration are those of the World Bank, the European Union, the OECD, UNCITRAL, and the WTO.
