Latin American Forum 2014

Latin America: A Region of Great Diversity


We would like to cordially invite you to the 2014 Latin American Forum to be held on Tuesday, May 6th at the University of Edinburgh Business School

Due to its success in previous years, the Forum has been listed as a top-tier event in Scotland, becoming a valuable platform that brings together people from different backgrounds and areas of expertise to evaluate the issues facing Latin America and its growing presence in the world.

This year's Forum aims to explore diversity in Latin America by discussing a variety of economic, political, and social topics ranging from the empowerment and economic integration of indigenous people to innovation and entrepreneurship, presented through world-class speakers, each contributing a unique perspective on the Forum's theme, and dynamic panel talks.

The event will attract over 10 high profile speakers from around the world with diverse backgrounds, students, and business professionals, in order to bring new light on Latin America as a region of economic and academic opportunities, opening new areas of research for students by introducing current issues and initiating dialogue.

Please visit our website for more information about the speakers and the program for the day:
