Governance In An Emerging New World: Latin America

Monday, December 3, 2018
Hauck Auditorium, Hoover Institution, Stanford University

Foreign policy starts in the neighborhood.

It will also consider whether the public transparency offered by new forms of communications can improve governance, and with it, growth.
