Upcoming Conference, Cuba's Constitutional Reform, and more from NACLA!



The Future of the Left in the Americas

Join Dissent magazine, the New School, and NACLA for two days of discussion with scholars, activists, and journalists from across the Americas about the challenges and opportunities for left politics in the region today. Across Latin America, the “pink tide,” which saw a range of left governments come to power over the last two decades, is in retreat. At the same time, new, left-wing electoral and social movements have emerged in many countries in Latin America as well as the United States. It is a critical time to reconsider what limitations and accomplishments left governments and movements across the region have had in recent years, and how they can build on these lessons in the pivotal years ahead.
