New class of Latin American Fellows arrives for the 2003-2004 season.
Dr. Marcos Cueto, professor at the Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia, will be working on a project entitled "Global Bodies: Malaria, International Health and Latin America." His research intends to study the most important international health campaign developed in Latin America during the second half of the 20th century: malaria eradication from rural areas by indoor spraying of the insecticide DDT.
Dr. Enrique Peruzzotti is Assistant Professor at the Universidad Torcuato di Tella in Buenos Aires, Argentina. His project, "Enforcing the Rule of Law and Controlling Corruption: The Politics of Social Accountability in Latin America," is a study of how the political scenario of many Latin American countries has recently been occupied by an array of social movements and a network of NGO's that demand more transparent and accountable government. The notion of societal accountability represents a first attempt at conceptualizing this phenomenon.
Wilson Center Fellows work on independent research while in residence at the Center. For more information on fellowships, as well as current and former fellows, please contact the Office of Scholar Selection and Services
