On March 6th – 8th 2017 the LSE Latin American and Caribbean Centre, the LSE Department of Government and the LSE Student Union Mexican Society, with the support of the Mexican Embassy in the UK and LSE Enterprise, will jointly host the 17th Mexican Week. The event is a three-day series of conferences and roundtables whose overall theme this year – The Challenge of Entangled Inequalities- was chosen by the Mexican students at the LSE.
Among the issues to be discussed in this year’s Week are poverty and inequality in Mexico, the impact of corruption and the (un)rule of law on Mexican society and the implications of a Trump presidency for Mexico and Latin America. The Mexican Week will be opened on 6th March at 18:00 by a round table on the topic “Inequalities in Mexico and How to Address it” with the participation of professor Gerardo Esquivel (El Colegio de Mexico) and Salomón Chertorivski (Mexico City Secretary for Economic Development).
The 17th Mexican Week follows the efforts and successes of previous conferences. Its objective is to provide a venue for the discussion of the challenges faced by Mexico in a global context and to engage our students in an exchange of ideas with the guest lecturers. Over the past years the Mexican week has brought together policy makers, state governors, ministers, academics and representatives of different sectors of Mexican society to debate Mexican and Latin American issues. Visit the LSE Mexico Week 2017 page for the full programme of events.
Venue: Room CLM 6.02, 6th floor of Clement House, LSE
This event is free and open to all with no ticket required.
