Populism Versus Democracy: What is happening in Latin America?
Authors discuss the recent political developments in Latin America
The end of military dictatorships in many Latin American countries was followed by the development of democratic structures. Yet populists from the right and left are once again erecting authoritarian systems – as they did recently in Brazil and Nicaragua. How are writers from Latin America dealing with these political changes and uncertainties? How openly can they – and how openly do they want to – write? What are their experiences?
The panel will be held in German and Spanish.
