The third wave of democracy swept rapidly over Latin America, so that by the end of the twentieth century nearly the entire region was democratic. Since then, however, much of the democratic discontent in the region has centered on the weakness of these very same institutions. This workshop will use the combined experience of some of the best researchers on Latin American institutions to take a deeper look at the distance between the promise and the performance of these formal institutional innovations.
Join us for an informal conversation with clinical faculty, staff, and students about defending rights (civil, environmental, human, immigrant, worker, etc.) in a post-election landscape. Free pizza. All are welcome.
