The Latin American Centre and the Universidad Andina in Quito are together organising a conference on the contemporary scene in the Andean republics (Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia) on May 5 and 6, 2016. 

The conference will take place in the Pavilion Room at Saint Antony’s College, beginning at 2pm on Thursday, May 5 and running through until 5pm on Friday May 6.  

It will involve four panels, preceded by a keynote address.  The panels will look at the current state of politics in the region; social movements and their influence; economic liberalization and extractive industries; and the Andean region and the wider world.  Panelists will be coming both from the Universidad Andina as well as from a variety of European and UK universities. 

Unfortunately numbers of participants will be strictly limited, so we would advise those wanting to take part in the conference to book well in advance.  Please contact enquiries@lac.ox.ac.uk
