About the Course

The course offers an insight into the political and social situation in Latin America. In the first module we study political processes, political institutions and political cultures in Latin America. The second module focuses on urban and rural problems. Throughout the course we analyse poverty, ethnicity, violence, gender, religions, agricultural, food and environmental problems, and the various social movements which make Latin America a unique model of social change.
