The CLACS Burning Issues in Latin America Series features subjects of key relevance for Latin American and Caribbean Studies.

CLACS invites scholars and practitioners who are able to present a fair and complex view of the issue at stake and engage in conversation with our student, research, and faculty body as well as with the general public.

The Burning Issues in Latin America Series has a long tradition at CLACS and has covered issues related to politics, journalism, the environment, security and violence, energy, governance, etc.
