Carmen McEvoy and Andrés Velasco in conversation with Natalia Sobrevilla

Future, challenges and hope in Latin America

Arequipa 2022, 

With over 400 million people sharing a single language, one of the most biodiverse territories in the world, connections that date from a colonial past and have continued throughout political history, Latin America enjoys a glorious diversity and richness; it also faces some intimidating challenges: growing poverty and social inequality, corruption, populism and violence. Faced with this unsettling yet dynamic panorama, and in conversation with the historian Natalia Sobrevilla Perea, three key experts will discuss the future: the historian Carmen McEvoy, author of Patrias andinas, patrias citadinas; and the historian (Peru), a doctor in History from the University of London and author of Los inicios de la república peruana and Independencia; and ; the economist Andrés Velasco (Chile), former Finance Minister in the Michelle Bachelet government and the author of Contra la desigualdad and Liberalismo en tiempos del cólera.
