About

In recent years Latin American scholarly literature has produced major theoretical and methodological innovations in numerous sub-literatures of comparative politics (such as presidentialism, legislatures, government coalitions, indigenous politics, elections, sub-national politics and comparative political economy). The Standing Group on Latin American Politics encourages scholars to engage themselves with this trend, both through Sections at the General Conference and summer schools on Latin American Politics.

Aims & Objectives

The standing group aims at developing and actively supporting a network of social scientists working on the politics of Latin America within the ECPR and to provide a platform for the dissemination information about events, publications and other developments in the field.

Activities

Organization of regular summer schools, encouragement of workshops, conference panels and research groups in the area of Latin American Politics.
