Latin America and the Crises of the Liberal International Order

The rise of Trump, the Brexit vote, and the resurgence of populist politics around the world have produced anxieties about the decline of a “Liberal International Order.”

As part of an international research conference on the origins, nature, and possible futures of the Liberal International Order, this public plenary session will offer historical and contemporary views from a region often overlooked in the debates: Latin America.

All the Reasons to Forget

After having broken up a long-term relationship, Antônio has no doubts he will quickly get over Sofia, his ex-girlfriend, but nothing is as simple as it seems, actually, it never is… And when Antônio realizes it is impossible to control his own feelings, he starts refusing them, using all kinds of modern palliative measures, to get rid of memories of his ex-girlfriend, such as: cognitive psychoanalysis, controlled substances, Tinder, among others, leading him to several tragicomical situations.

Conference: Latin America in the Liberal International Order
Nov 15 all-day

This conference will ask: What can we learn about the LIO and asymmetries of power by studying the Latin American experiences with the order? What role have Latin American actors played in theorizing, implementing, and criticizing the shape of the Liberal International Order? How has Latin American contention—rather than the region’s presumed acquiescence—changed the nature of the norms and practices that constitute the LIO? What does the Latin American experience tell us about both the temporality and the spatiality of the Liberal International Order? What do historical and present deviations from the norms of the LIO—such as economic nationalism, military dictatorships, or persistent violence—tell us about the concept and its application not only in Latin America, but perhaps more importantly, in the historical core of the LIO?
