The third annual Latin America conference will reflect on the economic, political, social and geopolitical impact of COVID-19 for the region, and the response so far. The discussions will serve as a platform to explore how the pandemic has highlighted structural weaknesses and strengths in Latin American economies, labour markets, political institutions and the social contract between states and citizens – and collectively propose ways governments, multilateral institutions and civil society can begin to reconceptualize and plan for addressing the flaws and fallout demonstrated by the current pandemic and resulting economic crisis.
Discussions will focus on:
Latin America and the global economy
The impact of COVID-19 on health and social policies
Implications of the pandemic on politics and democracy in the region
Effects on regional and global relations
The region’s challenges post-COVID-19
In addition, there will be roundtable discussions and spotlight sessions on energy policy in Brazil, Mexico and Venezuela; US-Latin America and UK relations post Brexit; climate change, and the effects of the pandemic on indigenous and Afro-descendant communities.
This conference is part of the Chatham House LIVE series and will be hosted online and on the record.
The LIVE series will bring together international audiences and enable participants to connect with peers from across the globe. Over the course of each LIVE conference, participants will be able to engage in high-level panel discussions and conversations between policymakers, business leaders and international experts. Other interactive features will include polling and live analysis of results, in addition to live question and answer sessions between participants and speakers.
