(Brasilia, 30 May 2010) A special issue of CEPAL Review  in Portuguese was launched for the first time, with a selection of 15 featured articles published over the past five years, including several by Brazilian authors.

CEPAL Review, which in April this year completed its 100th number in Spanish, is one of the main publications of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) and has served as a forum for the ideas generated by the institution, the efforts of researchers and analysts of Latin America and the Caribbean and the discussion of approaches, strategies and policies to foment an equal development in countries in the region.

For years, the Journal has received contributions from renowned Brazilian economists and social scientists, such as Celso Furtado, Fernando Henrique Cardoso, José Serra, Renato Baumann, Ricardo Bielschowsky, Maria da Conceição Tavares, Paulo Renato de Souza, Edmar Bacha and Antonio Barros de Castro, among others.

CEPAL Review in Portuguese is being launched within the framework of ECLAC's Thirty-third session taking place in the Brazilian capital from 30 May to 1 June, and coincides with the 50-year anniversary of the opening of ECLAC's office in Brazil.  

Given the close intellectual ties between Brazil and ECLAC, CEPAL Review has issued this special number in Portuguese with a selection of the 15 most featured articles published between 2005 and 2009. These include five works authored by nationally and regionally renowned Brazilian researchers and intellectuals: Renato Baumann and Ana Maria de Paiva Franco; Ricardo Bielschowsky; Wilson Suzigan and João Furtado; Sandro Monsueto, Ana Flavia Machado and André Braz Golher; and Helder Ferreira de Mendonça and Viviane Santos Vivian.

The special edition also includes articles by former ECLAC Executive Secretaries Enrique Iglesias, José Antonio Ocampo and José Luis Machinea; the professor of International Political Economy at Harvard University, Dani Rodrik; Emeritus Professor Tulio Halperin, of the University of California; international consultant Ricardo Infante, and the Chairman of CEPAL Review's Editorial Council, Osvaldo Sunkel.

The compilation is preceded by a review of the publication's milestones, written by André Hofman and Miguel Torres, Director and Technical Editor of CEPAL Review, respectively.

The English-language edition of CEPAL Review is a publication indexed in the Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI) published by Thomson Reuters, and in the Journal of Economic Literature (JEL) published by the American Economic Association.
