Daniel Chavez Moran: Globalization and Latin America

Daniel Chavez Moran and the Vidanta Foundation cosponsored a study of the challenges and opportunities faced by the nations of Latin America in the 21st century global economy, along with the Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México, and the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.

Questions posed by the study, one of many supporting scholarship and international relations,  supporting scholarship and international relations included:
  • What is the explanation for Latin America’s position within the international system and what are the opportunities and challenges posed by globalization?
  • Why, in spite of high international reserves and an improved fiscal situation, does Latin America continue to lag behind other regions?
  • How is Latin American integration forged and defined by factors such as:
    • The paralysis of sub-regional integration paralysis,
    • The increasing gap between North and South Latin America,
    • The interests of extra-regional players such as China and the European Union,
    • The different strategies to handle U.S. relations,
    • The competition for or lack of leadership, domestic and foreign problems influencing regional security,
    • The resurgence of energy as an hemispheric priority,
    • And the role of poverty and inequality in the Latin American international agenda?
The thoughts of prominent analysts and scholars with expertise in Latin American international relations were compiled in “América Latina:integración o fragmentación?” edited by Ricardo Lagos and published by Editorial Edhasa (Buenos Aires).
