    RFK Visiting Professor in Latin American Studies Lecture - Taking Law Seriously to Explore Economic and Social Inequality


    CGIS South, S-216, 1730 Cambridge Street
    6:00pm to 8:00pm

    Helena Alviar, Former Dean, Law School at the University of Los Andes; Robert F. Kennedy Visiting Professor, Harvard University

    Since the early 20th century there have been many legal transformations in the region that have promised to redistribute resources across class, gender and race.  Nevertheless, Latin America continues to be characterized by high levels of inequality and exclusion. The presentation explores the role that diverse and, at times, contradictory legal regimes play in stalling progressive reforms.
