How does the Covid-19 pandemic affect Latin America’s insertion with the world? Andrés Malamud explored this topic in the book ‘Unfulfilled Promises’ in 2019. Today he reflects on how the pandemic has changed none of the trends he then identified. Rather, it has highlighted all of them: at the global level, we witness increasing multipolarity, failure of multilateral cooperation, and a Sino-American power transition; in Latin America, we observe structural heterogeneity, political fragmentation, and geopolitical irrelevance. Let us elaborate.
El libro busca hacer un balance de donde se encuentra América Latina en una serie de temas cruciales: desarrollo socioeconómico, seguridad y violencia, estado de derecho, crecimiento económico, integración regional y relaciones con el mundo.
