Top Global University Project: Waseda Goes Global - A Plan to Build a Worldwide Academic Network that is Open, Dynamic and DiverseWaseda University


International Symposium “Political and Economic Factors Shaping Latin America in the Next Decade -Argentina, Brazil, Mexico and Comparison with East Asia-” (March 8)


In the past decade, Latin American countries have been faced with political and economic challenges. Since 2010, some countries such as Brazil and Mexico have experienced the slowdown of economic growth, and the economies of those countries have stagnated after achieving the middle-income economies, which is the so-called “middle -income trap”. Furthermore, the democracies in the region have been riddled with a series of corruption scandals, a weak rule of law, and political violence, which have lowered citizens’ trust in the governments and eroded the quality of democracy. What explains these emerging political and economic crises in the Latin America? Are there problems specific to Latin America? How can we predict what will follow in the coming years? In order to address these important issues, we ask experts from Latin American and East Asia to express their views on causes of some recent major changes in a particular country or the region as a whole, and analyze what we may expect in the next decade from a comparative perspective.

◆Session 1: Challenges to Democratic Accountability in Asia and Latin America
