Book Launch: The Resilience of the Latin American Right

Scholars and policymakers have focused much attention on Latin America’s “turn to the left” in recent decades, but few have examined the on-going role of right-of-center parties in the region. In The Resilience of the Latin American Right, co-editors Cristóbal Rovira Kaltwasser and Juan Pablo Luna explain the strategies that conservative political parties have used to maintain a foothold in the region’s electoral and governance processes.  Their new book evaluates right-of-center political activity across the continent, including analyses of parties and elections in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, El Salvador, Mexico, Peru, and Venezuela.

The event will feature a discussion of the book by editor Cristóbal Rovira Kaltwasser, as well as commentary by Stephen Kaplan of George Washington University and Hector Schamis of Georgetown University.

The book will be avilable for purchase at the event and via Johns Hopkins University Press (here).
