Next week on April 27 - 28, 2018, NACLA, MERIP (Middle East Research and Information Project), and Jadaliyya will convene scholars, artists, and activists for a two-day international conference at New York University to explore new and longstanding links between Latin America and the Middle East. Contributors will consider social movements, cultural exchanges, political and economic institutions, and transnational solidarity and diaspora politics in light of the Arab spring and winter, and against the backdrop of nearly two decades of left wing governance in Latin America.

The conference will also mark the release of our latest edition of the Report, a watershed issue for several reasons. Not only does it mark the first issue of NACLA’s 50th year of publication, it also finds us reaching well beyond the borders of Latin America in search of the region’s wider, global, and reciprocal influences. To do so, we have partnered with MERIP and Jadaliyya in an unprecedented cross-regional and cross-platform collaboration. Together, we have pooled our resources, expertise, and experience to explore links both new and longstanding between parts of the world infrequently considered side by side.
