Political Economy of Development in Latin America (Module)

Module description

This module is composed of ten sessions – the first hour allocated to lecturing on the region as a whole and the second hour allocated to discussion on specific countries. This module aims to strengthen students’ understanding of the historical, social, political and economic developmental dynamics of emerging economies in Latin America; and will provide students with tools to assess the factors that have impeded the construction of equitable societies in Latin America. This module will strengthen students’ ability to contrast intra- and inter-regional development experiences, mainly through the use of comparative historical institutional analysis.
