The School of Latin American Development Studies (ELADES) of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) launched the application period for the twenty-second edition of its Study Program on Latin American Economies, which each year brings together young researchers, graduates and/or postgraduates interested in studying the Latin American development process.
Registration is online and will be open until April 30, 2021. The list of people selected to participate will be published on the ELADES website on May 7. Classes will take place virtually between July 14 and September 5, 2021.
The registration and coursework are free of charge. The classes, which are mainly in Spanish, are given both by researchers who make up ECLAC’s staff as well as prestigious professors from diverse universities in Latin America and the Caribbean and elsewhere in the world.
Nearly 600 students, from 35 countries and distinct universities worldwide, have participated in the Study Program on Latin American Economies (known previously as Summer School) since its creation in 2000.
It serves as a plural space for thought that promotes discussion, reflection, and the generation and exchange of ideas on Latin American development, based on specialized contributions from ECLAC’s different divisions and advances on the frontier of academic research. The topics addressed include economic history, institutions, macroeconomics, microeconomics, and development philosophy and policy.
