The Latin American Social and Public Policy (LASPP) Conference

March 25-27, 2021


The Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS), University Center for International Studies (UCIS) at the University of Pittsburgh welcomes faculty and students to the 24th Latin American Social and Public Policy (LASPP) Conference on March 25-27, 2021. We are privileged to count on Dr. Carmelo Mesa-Lago, Distinguished Economics Faculty and former CLAS Director as our Keynote Speaker this year.

For over 20 years we have welcomed researchers from around the world to discuss social and public policy in Pittsburgh. Creating spaces where the scientific community can discuss the past, present, and future of Latin America, the Caribbean, and its Diasporas is always important; it seems even more crucial these days. Mindful of the pandemic and dedicated to including those who otherwise would not be able to participate, LASPP 2021 will be fully online.

Participants will benefit from CLAS' extensive international network and in-house scholars. This assures that authors and presenters collect insightful feedback benefitting from top researchers in Latin American Studies. We have already been able to assign Pitt faculty as discussants to nearly every panel. Moreover, in order to become ever more inclusive and lower barriers for scientific exchange, papers may be presented in English, Spanish, and Portuguese. 

Abstracts: January 10, 2021
Full papers: February 7, 2021
