The Future of Democracy in Central and South America EVENT CANCELED

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED

From Argentina to Colombia, market-friendly, moderate governments are consolidating the gains of decades of collective efforts, while the tragic unraveling of Venezuela and the anti-corruption wave spreading across the region seem to indicate that the time for authoritarian rulers and lack of accountability is over. Yet the growth of populism elsewhere, the menace of global economic instability, and the disillusionment of Latin Americans with democracy could easily turn the current situation into a very different story.

On April 18, Hudson Institute will host a panel to discuss the future of democracy in Central and South America. The panel will consist of writer and journalist Claudio Iván Remeseira and Jaime Daremblum, Director of Hudson Institute’s Center for Latin American Studies.
