A Panel Discussion on the State of Democracy in Latin America

In the last decade there have been achievements and progress in some areas in Latin America, such as the increase of the middle class and the strengthening of the economy. Nonetheless, there are some remaining challenges with regard to democracy and institutional development that are vital to be addressed in order to provide better services and wellbeing to their citizens. The event aims at exploring current progress and challenges for Latin American democracies.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
