The Latin American Studies program is proud to co-sponsor a roundtable discussion on the recent developments in Peru.

About the Roundtable Panel:
Peruvians have been mobilizing in a political and social crisis triggered by the ouster of President Pedro Castillo in late 2022. Responses by the de facto government to protests and calls for a new constitution have left at least 55 dead and many more injured or detained, leading to increasing critical attention across Latin America and the world. This hybrid roundtable discussion brings together scholars and activists from across the Americas with the aim of better understanding the events, stakes, and likely outcomes of the situation in Peru.

Please note: This event will be in Spanish and English, with simultaneous interpretation provided via Zoom.
