In cooperation with the Graduate School Global and Area Studies and the Research Centre Global Dynamics (University of Leipzig), the Coloquio de Estudios Latinomericanos will explore in its third conference the roots and dynamics of recent disruptions in Latin America from a global perspective. The conference presentations investigate potentially destructive and productive impulses emanating from fluctuations, turmoils, and hindrances faced by the subcontinent since the 2000s.
