The Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) launched the application period for its Summer School on Latin American Economies 2019, a training program aimed at young researchers, graduates and/or postgraduates interested in studying the process of Latin American development.
The 20th session of the Summer School will take place from July 15 through September 30, 2019 at the headquarters of the United Nations regional organization in Santiago, Chile.
The online applications will be accepted until April 12, 2019. The list of people selected for the program will be published on ECLAC’s website on April 19.
The Summer School, coordinated by ECLAC’s Division of Production, Productivity and Management, was created in 2000. Since then, more than 500 students from 35 countries and from different universities throughout the world have participated. The classes, in Spanish and English, are given by researchers from ECLAC’s staff and prestigious professors from diverse universities located in Latin America and the Caribbean and other regions.
The School is a plural space for thinking that promotes discussion, reflection and the production and exchange of ideas regarding Latin American problems, based on the specialized contributions of ECLAC’s distinct divisions and cutting-edge advances in academic research.
The Institute for New Economic Thinking will collaborate once again on this latest session.
Registration and the course itself are free of charge. Participants are responsible for costs related to transportation, trips, accommodations and their stay.
