Linda Green, director of Latin American Studies, and Matias Bianchi, School of Government and Public Policy, used innovative technologies to create a virtual seminar series linking UA faculty and students with scholars and other leaders in Latin America. Seminar discussion topics included (links to pages with PDFs of the dialogues): Drug Policies in Latin America: From Repression to Regulation, Elections in Bolivia: What’s at Stake?, Foreign Debt and Human Rights, Regional Integration in the Americas - Challenges and Perspectives, Social Movements in the Digital Era, Social-Environmental Conflicts in Latin America: Lessons from the Yasuni in Ecuador.
The dialogues were organized in partnerships with Asuntos del Sur (a non-profit organization that serves as a think tank for Latin Americanists), FLACSO (Facultad Latinoamericano de Ciencias Sociales)-Ecuador, FLACSO-Argentina and Catholic University of La Paz in Bolivia. The series served hundreds of participants in Tucson and in Latin America.
