September 23, 2021 - September 24, 2021
9:30 AM - 4:00 PM


Hybrid event: online & Onsite (The Union League Club - 38 East 37th Street)


The speed of human evolution and the resulting changes present a series of challenges that our societies must face. Therefore, as centers of study, research and thought, we feel strongly committed to encourage the creation of ideas and promote new practices, which allow the region’s societies to be more inclusive, with greater access to information and the creation of knowledge.

This initiative’s main objective is to promote a space for debate and offer a comprehensive platform for the exchange of ideas, discussion and analysis on the current role of Latin America and the Caribbean in the global arena, as well as its implications and challenges.

The process of continual integration in Latin America and the Caribbean and the growing role of the region as a strategic, political and trading partner in today’s world order are among the topics of unique importance to be discussed.

This effort aims to bring together the main centers of thought dedicated to the study of the region’s dynamics to discuss and formulate proposals that contribute to equitable development.

The event will take place alongside the Annual Period of the Ordinary Session of the United Nations General Assembly, in New York City on September 22, 23 and 24, 2021 and is aimed toward academics and figures working in the region’s political, economic and social fields.
