Latin American Elections 2011-2012: What Do They Tell Us?

In previous events in this series, we examined results of the presidential elections in Guatemala and Argentina. This time we will take an in-depth look at Nicaragua’s presidential elections of November 6, 2011, and Colombia’s regional and municipal elections of October 30, 2011. Looking ahead to two of the hemisphere’s most important contests in 2012, we will explore pre-electoral dynamics in Mexico and Venezuela.

Latin American Elections 2011-2012: What Do They Tell Us?

In previous events in this series, we examined results of the presidential elections in Guatemala and Argentina. This time we will take an in-depth look at Nicaragua’s presidential elections of November 6, 2011, and Colombia’s regional and municipal elections of October 30, 2011.  Looking ahead to two of the hemisphere’s most important contests in 2012, we will explore pre-electoral dynamics in Mexico and Venezuela.   What do these elections tell us about changing political and economic realities in the region?  What are the principal issues shaping the upcoming campaigns?  What are the mechanisms for insuring a fair outcome?

To bridge the gap between scholarship and policy action, it fosters new inquiry, sponsors high-level public and private meetings among multiple stakeholders, and explores policy options to improve outcomes for citizens throughout the Americas. Drawing on the Wilson Center’s strength as the nation’s key non-partisan forum, the Program serves as a trusted source of analysis and a vital point of contact between the worlds of scholarship and action.  Read more
