Latin America 2021: Elections, economic recovery, foreign policy and the COVID-19 effect What are we learning from the 2021 elections and the likely medium and long-term social, economic and political effects of the pandemic?
On 30 November 2021 from 13:00 to 17:00 GMT, Chatham House will hold a half-day event on the political, economic and foreign policy trends in Latin America. Originally intended to be Chatham House’s annual Latin America conference to be held in Mexico on 29-30 November in partnership with the Mexican Council on Foreign Relations (COMEXI), the COVID-19 pandemic and related travel restrictions forced a postponement of the Mexico City conference until May 2022.
This half day event, to be held virtually, is being organized in its place for 2021. In its abbreviated form, the event will bring together leading policymakers, economists, political analysts and private sector leaders to survey this year’s elections and political conditions as well as their implications for the region’s political, economic and foreign policy future.
