The Latin American Studies program is glad to invite you to a public panel discussion to examine the political and historical context of the run-off election for President of Argentina scheduled for November 19, 2023. The two contenders in race are Sergio Massa, representing the ruling coalition Unión por la Patria (Union for the Homeland), and Javier Milei, the far-right political outsider from the coalition La Libertad Avanza (Liberty Advances). Our panel features distinguished experts in Argentinian politics who will help you gain insights into the election's significance and the factors contributing to Milei's emergence on the political scene.
