Tuesday Seminar Series: Expanding Social Policy Equity in Latin America (1990-2013)

12:00pm

Location: 

CGIS South, S250, 1730 Cambridge Street

Speaker: Rossana Castiglioni, Associate Professor of the Political Science School, Universidad Diego Portales in Santiago, Chile

Since the beginning of the late 1990s, Latin American countries made great advances in terms of equitable social policy.

Tuesday Seminar Series: Draining the Swamp? Partisan Bias in the Prosecution of Former Latin American Leaders

12:00pm

Location: 

CGIS South, S250, 1730 Cambridge Street

Speaker: Gretchen Helmke, Professor of Political Science, University of Rochester

This paper introduces and analyzes an original dataset, Latin American Leaders on Trial, which examines the extended post-tenure legal fates of 119 Latin American presidents over the last three and a half decades. Because we can only observe whether, when, and for what crimes former leaders are charged, but not whether such crimes were actually committed, our analysis of whether the rule of law is functioning or being manipulated in any given case is limited in...
