Few regions of the world have undergone such political upheaval as Latin America in recent times. The continent has been the setting for numerous socio-political protests and movements, in which very different nations have experienced similar discontent and social agitation. It is possible that this is the result of the common colonial-historical background, which has resulted in most cases in very polarized societies, with high levels of poverty and inequality, which have only increased with the health emergency caused by the pandemic. The journalist and writer Martín Caparrós (Argentina), the journalist Moisés Naím (Venezuela), the historian Natalia Sobrevilla (Peru) and the journalist Michael Reid (United Kingdom) will talk to the journalist Jacqueline Fowks (Peru) with the goal of trying to understand and find common ground regarding the complexity of the social processes that are happening on our continent.
