The LSE Latin America and Caribbean blog aims to use expert, evidence-based analysis to increase awareness and understanding of Latin America and the Caribbean, both as a region and as individual states and territories. We are particularly keen to publish contributions that approach the region on its own terms rather than interpreting it through the lens of events, processes, and interests elsewhere.
Our thematic coverage is broad and multidisciplinary, encompassing all aspects of governance, economics, international affairs, politics, culture, and society.
Our geographic coverage extends from Mexico and Bermuda in the north to Tierra del Fuego in the south, including all of the independent states and overseas dependencies in-between (full list), as well as their diasporas.
We have no editorial “line” beyond our commitment to communicating social-science research and commentary in ways that enhance public debate and understanding.
The blog is run by the LSE Latin America and Caribbean Centre (left), which serves as a hub for LAC-focused research and events, building on the School’s deep and longstanding engagement with the region.
We encourage the submission of well-argued, evidence-based material that can improve public debate on any and all issues involving and affecting the region and its peoples. For further information, and for details of how to submit a blog article, please get in touch.
