Tuesday, March 25: IIB’s Christopher Krull Leads Discussion on Latin American Politics at the Great Decisions Speaker Series


IIB's Christopher Krull Presents at Thursday's Great Decisions Speaker Series

Electoral results in Latin America over the past four years have led many observers of the regional/political scene to discern a left-wing surge in the hemisphere, reminiscent of the so-called “Pink Tide” that swept the area some 20 years ago. But how much do these politicians actually have in common? What implication does their ascendency have for the region?

IIB’s Christopher Krull will lead a discussion on Politics in Latin America this Tuesday from 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. This live event will include a video presentation followed by an interactive discussion.

Tuesday, February March 5, marks our third 2023 Great Decisions Speaker Series presentation. The series features eight engaging foreign policy discussions introduced and facilitated by leading experts across Western New York. To order tickets, download the 2023 Registration Form.
