Join us for the first Eckstein Distinugished Lecture on Latin America in the World, to be given by Matias Spektor, Professor of Politics and International Relations at the School of International Relations at Fundação Getulio Vargas (FGV), which he founded and where he has led an institution building project to create a major hub for researching and teaching international affairs in Brazil.

Spektor conducts both academic research and practical work on international security, climate politics, political violence, and the history and theory of international order, with a focus on Brazil, Latin America, and the Global South. He collaborates widely with governments, international organizations, and think-tanks to advance solutions based on applied social science.

Spektor's current projects involve the study of hypocrisy in international order, backlash against foreign climate shaming, the effects of U.S. counterproliferation policy on nuclear latent states, and great power competition in the Western Hemisphere
