Latin America is upset. The polls show it, the succession of "social outbreakts" in diferent countries confirm it, and citizens who vote with disillusionment ratify it. In his book Repúblicas defraudadas, the Peruvian academic Alberto Vergara establishes that this general unrest is due to the mulple forms of stagnation in which Latin America finds itself:political, economic and social, and he examines the structural causes of this discontent, which include a lack of security for citizens, insufficient health and education services, economic factors, segregation, racism and corruption, illustrating and supporting his arguments with examples from popular culture, including the films Alfonso Cuarón’s Roma and Luis Puenzo’s La historia oficial, and the songs of Caetano Veloso. Alberto will talk about these challenges with the principal of EAFIT University, Claudia Restrepo.
