This year, the international congress exams both “how people in other regions study and perceive Latin America and how Latin American studies contribute to the understanding of comparable processes and issues around the globe. ”
With more than 900 sessions, including plenary sessions and informal meetings, and 7,000 assistants –among professors, graduate students, undergraduate students, representatives of NGOs and other organizations worldwide– the Congress is the leading global forum for the debate on Latin America and the Caribbean.
It is the first time this initiative will take place in Europe, and LASA estimates it will be its largest congress.
The Association of Latin American Studies (LASA) is the largest professional association in the world that brings together individuals and institutions dedicated to the study of Latin America.
With more than 12,000 members, of which the next one expires in the United States, LASA is the association that brings together experts in Latin America from all disciplines and in diverse occupational areas throughout the world.
