Why the English School has remained silent on Latin America's international relations? How can the English School help in identifying the main drivers of politics and security in Latin America? Can we think of Latin America as a regional international society? If so, which are its main institutions? Can Latin America bring new dimensions into the English School research programme? These are the questions Federico Merke will try to answer from both a historical and a current perspective.
Federico Merke holds a PhD in Social Sciences from the Latin American Faculty of Social Sciences, a Master of Arts in International Studies from Warwick University and a BA in International Relations from the Universidad del Salvador. His research interests include IR Theory, International Politics and Security, Latin American international relations, and Argentine and Brazilian foreign policy.
Tanya Harmer is head of the Latin American International Affairs Programme at LSE IDEAS: Diplomacy and Strategy.
