LAM seeks to promote the discussion and better understanding of economic, social and political issues in Latin American countries through a public policy approach. In this vein, LAM will promote activities to increase the awareness of the economic, social and political situation in Latin America from a public policy perspective, both at the Irving B. Harris School of Public Policy Studies and at the University of Chicago; establish an information channel for Latin American issues among LAM members and non members, taking advantage of the diversity of origin of our members; and promote a better understanding of the culture and idiosyncrasies of Latin American countries within the University of Chicago community.
In order to give some guidance, when publishing to this blog, please consider the following:
- While LAM’s official language is English, it is fine to publish articles in Spanish. All authors and contributors are strongly encouraged to provide abstracts in English (or translations) when possible.
- The nine categories that are tagged in the blog will be the main subjects of the blog. Nevertheless, authors can post about different subjects and tag them as they prefer.
- The blog is open to all University of Chicago students and invited contributors.
