November 11th, 2013

The Inter-American Dialogue and the Center for Inter-American Policy and Research at Tulane University is pleased to introduce the first of a series of seminars on Central America‘€™s political, economic, and social climate. In this first seminar, Julieta Castellanos, rector of the National Autonomous University of Honduras and Eric Olson of the Woodrow Wilson Center will analyze the upcoming Honduran election’s outcomes and the country’s possible scenarios. The conversation will be moderated by the Dialogue’s Manuel Orozco. Occurring only several days after general elections in Honduras, this initial meeting will focus on the various challenges and opportunities facing the country‘€™s new leaders. The session will take place from 8:30 to 10:00 am on Wednesday, November 27 at the Inter-American Dialogue. Please note that portions of this event may be in Spanish. A wide-ranging discussion with the audience will follow opening remarks.

On November 24th, Hondurans will elect a new president and vote for all 128 members of the National Congress. The elections, which come amidst rising levels of unemployment, crime, violence, and widespread public discontent, have huge implications for the country’s future.
