Latin America at the Crossroads: Spring Seminar Series with the Center for Inter-American Policy and Research

Dr. Mónica Pachón is dean of the school of political science, government, and international relations at Universidad del Rosario in Bogota, Colombia. Professor Pachón received a PhD in political science at UC San Diego and an MA in Latin American Studies at Oxford. An expert on Colombia, she has published numerous books and articles on elections, legislative institutions, constitutions, and parties and party systems

Colombia‘€™s two-year old peace agreement with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) faces a new test on May 27, when the country holds a general election. This election is critical, since it is the first in which the FARC will participate as a legal political party. Yet, former FARC guerrillas face harsh critics on the right, death threats, and energetic protests at campaign events. Meanwhile, in splintered field of presidential candidates, Gustavo Petro, the leftist former mayor of Bogota, has emerged with a small, albeit steady lead in the polls. Who will be the likely winners and losers in this election? What is at stake for peace and development in Colombia?

RSVP is required. Email cipr@tulane.edu to reserve a spot. Event is free and open to the public.
