LAC Debates Remittances to Latin America

Remittances to Latin America, LAC Seminar 22 Oct 13

On 22nd October 2013, the LAC held a roundtable discussion on the economic and political effects of remittances to Latin America. Isabel Ruiz (Harris Manchester College), Faisal Ahmed (Nuffield College), and David Doyle (St Hugh's College) analyzed how remittances ameliorate economic downturns in the region, how they impact traditional political practices such as clientelism, and how they may affect electoral choices. The three presentations were discussed by Dr Diego Sánchez-Ancochea (St Antony's College) and by an audience of faculty and students.
