Reimagining Regional Governance in Latin America

Reimagining Regional Governance in Latin America

 from 3:00 pm to 4:15 pm
Virtual Event

As Latin America grapples with three overlapping crises — devastation from the coronavirus pandemic, severe economic contraction, and heightened political polarization and democratic backsliding — regional cooperation is falling badly short. Drawing on the recent Carnegie paper on this topic by three noted Latin American experts, this event will probe how regional governance can be productively and creatively reimagined to better meet the daunting challenges at hand.

This event is being held in collaboration with Inter-American Dialogue.
