Charlemos is a new initiative that creates space for political scientists and other academics to discuss the critical social and political challenges facing Latin America today--including democratic backsliding, economic inequality, racial injustice, gender inequities, and a host of other issues – we are inaugurating a new virtual series.

The first lecture in the Charlemos Series will be hosted by Jennifer Cyr. Javier Corrales will present his paper, "Democratic backsliding through electoral irregularities: The case of Venezuela," (European Review of Latin American and Caribbean Studies, 2020) and Fabrice Lehoucq will present his paper (forthcoming in Journal of Democracy), "Bolivia's Citizen Revolt."
