Following the victory of left-wing presidents in Mexico (2018), Argentina (2019), Bolivia (2020), along with Peru, Honduras and Chile (2021) and then Colombia and Brazil (2022), a new wave of pink tide has surged in Latin America. The new pink tide has attracted a great deal of journalistic attention, yet very few analyses have focused on its sudden revival and its prospects for long-term success. In his lecture titled Latin America’s New ‘Left Turn’ in Comparative and Historical Perspective, Kenneth Roberts would discuss the challenges confronted by the new leftist governments in the region and explain how they emerged and what they signify for political and economic developments in the region.
This event is an initiative of CGC’s Latin America Program.
