Webinar: The Extreme Right and Militarization in Latin America

Date/Time
Date(s) – Thursday – May 28, 2020
4:00 pm – 5:30 pm

Important note: this webinar takes place from 4:00-5:30pm Central European Summer Time.
If you are in a different time zone, please ensure that you check the event’s time in your location.

Dr. Pedro Páez Pérez, professor at the Central University of Ecuador and specialist on economic development and the political economy, joins IPB to discuss contemporary Latin American politics with particular attention to the ascension of far-right forces to power and their role in the militarization of the region.

In recent years, Latin American politics has shifted and brought to power far-right leaders. A central aspect of these politicians’ platforms has been a glorification of national militaries and policies of confrontation. Such positions highlight the increasing militarization of the region. Dr. Páez will cover these developments and provide insights into what this means for the future of the region.

After the presentation, there will be time for discussion and questions.

The webinar will be in English.
