Working Papers Series

The ILAS Working Papers on Latin America are articles, research reports, position papers and various other works-in-progress by faculty, visiting scholars and other affiliates of the Institute of Latin American Studies and Columbia University.  By making this scholarship available online, we hope to serve as a resource and to create a virtual meeting place for dialogue and the development of new ideas. Discussion generated on this site helps ILAS strengthen our programming to meet the ever-evolving interests of our academic community. Working Papers can also be accessed at the Columbia University Academic Commons.
