Conference on the new middle class in Latin America
As part of the ongoing collaboration between our Latin America Centre (University of Oxford) and CAF-Development Bank of Latin America, we are organizing the second international conference on 31 October in Oxford. The title is "The emerging middle class in Latin America: causes, challenges and opportunities". It will be a great opportunity to explore the extent to which the emerging middle class is truly new, truly part of the new middle class and to discuss its economic and political impacts. One of the many things that makes the event exciting is the mix of policymakers (including former Ministers of Colombia, Peru and Costa Rica) and academics. More details, including how to sign, at http://www.lac.ox.ac.uk/caf-oxford-conference-emerging-middle-class-latin-america-causes-challenges-and-opportunities.
If you are a student in the UK, we have bursaries of up to 100 pounds to attend the conference.
