The LAPJ intends to start a spirited conversation between the Harvard community and key stakeholders in the region. We invite all the students from and interested in Latin America to use the Journal as a window to express their opinions, advocate for their ideals, and learn from new and different perspectives.
The seventh edition of the LAPJ will focus on the notion of Shifting Winds. The region is suffering from a leadership crisis and popular discontent. Several nations are questioning their traditional political order, while facing economic downturns after a decade of accelerated growth. We are looking for pieces that put the most outstanding policy and political dynamics observed in the region at the core of the analysis.
The best pieces will be selected based on the relevance of the topic, originality, sophistication, and style of the arguments, and the contribution to scholarship and policy-making on Latin American issues.
