Conversation with Michiel Baud: What is happening in Latin America?
Wednesday 20 November 2019, 16:00 - 17:30
Protest seems to be the current state of affairs in many Latin American countries. What are the origins of these protests, why now, how serious are they, will they spread even more across Latin America, and how will it affect the rest of the world? Together with Globalisation Studies Groningen (GSG), we aim to find an answer to these and other questions. GSG’s Deputy Director Gerda van Roozendaal will be in conversation with Latin America expert Professor Michiel Baud (UvA).
Between 2000 and 2018, Michiel Baud was Director of the Centre for Latin American Research and Documentation in Amsterdam, and is currently a Professor of Latin American Studies at the University of Amsterdam. He has published extensively about Latin American and Caribbean politics, history and social movements.
The event is free and open to everyone.
