The Policymaking Process: Lessons from Central America and Beyond

The Policymaking Process: Lessons from Central America and Beyond

More than a decade ago, the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) spearheaded an in-depth analysis of eight South American countries that profoundly impacted the understanding of political institutions and the policymaking process in Latin America. This project is now being expanded to include nations from Central America. At this seminar, original papers will be reevaluated, new papers will be presented and policymakers who participated in the drafting the original reports will discuss the ongoing influence of this work. Participants will include Erika de la Garza, program director of the Baker Institute Latin America Initiative, and Mark P. Jones, Baker Institute fellow in political science and the Joseph D. Jamail Chair in Latin American Studies at Rice University.

This event will be held at the IDB in Washington, D.C., and will be webcast live beginning at 8:30 AM CDT. For more information and to view the livestream, visit
