Webcast Recap

Elections serve to renew or alter national and local leadership but also bring into sharp relief the most salient challenges facing a nation.  As Latin America’s electoral “super-cycle” comes to an end, please join the Latin American Program, IDEA Internacional, El País, and NTN24 to explore elections in 2014-15 and what they tell us about political and economic trends in Central America, South America, and the Andean region.
