This course is a general introduction to the study of social and political changes and conflicts in contemporary Latin America. One of the main objectives of Latin American Politics is to help students meet the challenges of understanding politics in a rapidly changing region of the world of the post-Cold War international system, which is becoming closely integrated to the United States as the world becomes more and more economically interdependent in a globalized knowledge based economy while at the same time becomes more and more fragmented politically.
