Think tank, and a do tank

The fight for the Latin American soul

Winning the struggle over institutional weakness and populism, Latin America, until now, has also resisted the international financial crisis. Michael Reid, author of "The Forgotten Continent" ("O Continente Esquecido") (2008) and one of the most respected journalists working in the region, analyses the factors that explain this resistance and the challenges and threats that are still present.

When: 06/04/2009, at 18:00

Despite episodes of institutional weakness episodes and populism that have marked Latin American history, the region has resisted the international crisis well. Michael Reid, author of "The Forgotten Continent" ("O Continente Esquecido") (2008) and one of the most respected journalists working in the region, analyses the factors that explain this resistance and the challenges and threats that are still present. For Reid, the Latin American people deserve recognition for defending economic stability and for the consolidation of democracy, as they offer a horizon that is, in large part, positive in a post-crisis world. Reid, Sant'Anna and Ricupero are members of the Fernand Braudel Institute.
