​Harvard-ID holders are invited to join the Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation and David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies for the RFK Visiting Professor in Latin American Studies Lecture featuring Fernando Limongi, Robert F. Kennedy Visiting Professor of Latin American Studies.

Today, most Latin American countries are democracies. Military regimes and coups are not as frequent as in the past. Yet, political instability remains a regional feature. Several presidents have been forced out of office before concluding their term. Impeachments are not rare events. Professor Limongi will discuss the Brazilian case, two presidential impeachments in less than 20 years, as a means to better understand and question Latin America’s new instability.

Alex Keyssar, Matthew W. Stirling, Jr. Professor of History and Social Policy, will moderate.
