Latin America in a Multi-polar World

November 15, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm

The Observatory on Latin America OLA, The Julien J. Studley Graduate Programs in International Affairs, Schools of Public Engagement, Universidad de los Andes, Colegio de Mexico and Universidad Torcuato Di Tella, invite you to the International conference, Latin America in a Multi-polar World.

The growing convergence of COVID-19, the war in Ukraine, food and fuel shortages around the world, have all given rise to a perception that the world cannot be left to either US-Russia or US-China bi-polar relations. The recent announcement that the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) has been expanded to include Argentina, Egypt, Ethiopia, Iran, Saudi Arabia, and United Arab Emirates is a major step in this direction. This conference will discuss this process and what it means for Latin America.
