Throughout its history, Latin America has produced vigorous ideas, but many of its emerging social [...]and cultural movements are not yet well structured. To that end, Boston University’s Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future paired up with the Latin American Studies program to analyze what social, economic, political, and cultural patterns are most likely to emerge in Latin America over the next 50 years.
The task force convened over two days in November 2010, with the second panel focusing on politics and policies. David Scott Palmer, a BU professor of international affairs and director of the BU Latin American Studies program, spoke about future prospects of democracy in Latin America, while Riordan Roett, a Johns Hopkins professor of political science, looked at the changing dynamics of U.S. relations with Latin America. Finally, Silvia Inclán, a professor of political science from Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, examined judicial reform in Latin America.
Hosted by the Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future, in conjunction with the BU Latin American Studies program, on November 18, 2010.
