2018 Elections in Latin America

Topic: In 2018, Latin America’s three biggest countries - Brazil, Columbia and Mexico - plus Costa Rica, Paraguay and Venezuela - held Presidential elections, in a year that could see sweeping change across the region. Join us for a discussion of the resulting political shifts and challenges to democracy.

Speaker: Pablo Policzer, PhD, Director of the Latin American Research Centre (LARC) and Associate Professor of Political Science, U of C.

Dr. Policzer’s research focuses on the evolution of violent conflict - especially among militaries, police forces, and non-state armed groups in authoritarian and democratic regimes.

He is a Fellow at the Centre for Military and Strategic Studies, he formerly held the Canada Research Chair in Latin American Politics, and is the award-winning author of The Rise and Fall of Repression in Chile.
