Democratic Governance in Latin America

The University of Notre Dame’s Kellogg Institute for International Studies will partner with the Organization of American States (OAS) and the Inter-American Dialogue for a policy workshop Nov. 5 (Friday) in Washington, D.C. at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.

Focusing on “Democratic Governance in Latin America,” the policy workshop will feature Augusto de la Torre, the chief economist for Latin America and the Caribbean at the World Bank.

“The greatest challenge facing contemporary Latin America is how governance can be both democratic and effective,” says Scott Mainwaring, Kellogg Institute director. “Partnering with the OAS and the Inter-American Dialogue, we aim to link our research with the policymaking world.”

In conjunction with the policy workshop, there also will be a book launch for a new book “Democratic Governance in Latin America,” co edited by Kellogg faculty fellows Mainwaring and Rev. Timothy R. Scully, C.S.C., at 6 p.m. on Nov. 4 (Thursday) at the OAS offices. The event will be hosted by José Miguel Insulza, the secretary general of the OAS, and Michael Shifter, president of Inter-American Dialogue.
