The 2019 Latin American Conference at the Harvard Kennedy School will be the 6th edition of this student-organized conference. This conference aims at generating a space to analyze the region's main challenges through a debate featuring political actors, social leaders, policy experts and practitioners with a leadership position in Latin America. This is a platform to foster discussion and learning by encouraging the participation of students and faculty of Harvard and other institutions.
In this sixth edition, the Conference will focus on the region’s recent efforts to promote more sustainable, inclusive and democratic societies. We will discuss strategies at the local and regional levels to protect democracies at risk, support the local integration of immigrants, promote gender equality, and address climate change.
