REPAL

Red de Economía Política de América Latina

REPAL is a new network of researchers (institutionally affiliated with universities in Latin America, North America, and Europe) interested in promoting and giving greater visibility to new studies in the political economy of Latin America. In thematic terms, it is interested in analyzing the interaction among economic, political, and social processes. REPAL is particularly concerned with how the findings of such analyses further our understanding of development models, the socio-political institutions that sustain them, and the practical problems they face. In methodological terms, REPAL seeks to promote research that is empirically grounded and sensitive to context and that leads to new forms of description, concept formation, causal inference, and theoretical innovations that challenge the conventional wisdom on socially relevant phenomenon in the region. With respect to methods of research and analysis, REPAL’s approach is open and eclectic, based on a simple premise that the methods should be selected as a function of the problem to be studied rather than the reverse. Institutionally, REPAL is a network open to the research community and structured around the promotion of diverse, plural debate on the political economy of Latin America.
