Lecture by Julio Burdman, Universidad de Belgrano, Argentina

The Latin American Studies program is pleased to present:

Julio Burdman, visiting Professor from Universidad de Belgrano (Buenos Aires, Argentina)

During the last decade, a different international agenda emerged for South America. Economic growth, natural resources, social distribution, and China are some of its current economic realities. Democratic consolidation, populist presidentialism, and a new pattern of regional integration are some of its political features. Behind this agenda, there is a new geopolitics that in a not-so-far future could make the subcontinent able to pursue power politics at the global level: under Brazilian leadership, physical integration and territorial control are structurally changing the face of South America. In this lecture, we will take a brief tour to these trends.

Julio Burdman is Licenciado and Profesor en Ciencia Política from the University of Buenos Aires. Currently, he is Director of the Program in Political Science and International Relations at the University of Belgrano, Director of the Latin American Electoral Observatory and Secretary of the Institute for Political Sociology at the National Academy of Moral and Political Sciences, all in Argentina. Among other research works, he was the principal drafter of Latin America 2020, the regional chapter of NIC's Global Trends 2020 Project.
