FY 2013/2014 Research Topic: B-203
Political, Economic, and Social Issues in Latin America

Outline

This project aims to analyze the current situations and development-related topics that Latin American countries have experienced. Among the most important issues in recent years are: the rise and continuance of radical leftist governments and their impact upon regional alliances, the Presidential elections in various countries, the emerging economies such as Brazil, the impact on regional economies of the economic crisis originating from the United States and Europe, and persistent social problems such as poverty, drugs, and crimes.
We currently publish semestral journals titled the “Latin America Report” (in Japanese).
