Long Range Development in Latin America

LSE - Stanford - Universidad de los Andes Conference

The Latin America and Caribbean Centre (LACC), with the support of the LSE Annual Fund, and led by Jean-Paul Faguet and Alberto Diaz-Cayeros will co-sponsor the first LSE-Stanford conference on Long Range Development at Stanford University in May 2017.

The multi-disciplinary conference will probe into the institutional, political, and economic drivers of long-run development in Latin America and beyond. Political economy research on Latin America is on the verge of a major breakthrough, based on deep collaborations between historians, political scientists, economists and scientists further afield.  The research presented features new empirical approaches, exploiting novel datasets, subnational variation, and mixed methods in ways that promise to shed light on some of the most complex social issues of our time.

This conference will mark the start of a series of conferences, including the 2018 conference at the LSE and the 2019 conference at Universidad de los Andes in Bogota.
