A new episode of Foco América is now available on Spotify, Apple podcast, Ivoox, Google and wherever you get your podcasts. The episode is entitled ‘Latin America in 2023: beyond the headlines’.

Why has the year gotten off to a turbulent start in Brazil and Peru? What can we expect from the presidential elections in Argentina, Paraguay and Guatemala? What about the next Ibero-American Summit in the Dominican Republic?  Professors Carlos Malamud and Pedro Rodríguez, regular Foco América contributors, analyze the main keys for the region in the coming months and highlight how, in the face of the litany of bad news, the continent is much more resilient than the headlines suggest. Democratic institutionality ends up working if the limit is reached and the reconfiguration of the world economy after the war in Ukraine may offer good and unexpected opportunities. Macroeconomic figures confirm that this region has recovered from the pandemic setback much faster than Europe, despite the enormous social scars that remain.

This episode features Yanina Welp, Argentine research associate at the Albert Hirschman Centre on Democracy and editorial coordinator of Agenda Pública. Juan Carlos Gozzer, Partner and CEO Americas at LLYC, will also speak.

The Firm is using the hashtag #FocoAméricaLLYC to stir up social media conversations about current affairs in the Americas.
