Encuentro Latioamericano de Think Tanks
FGV, Rio de Janeiro - 10/07/2013 - 19:00 - 12/07/2013 - 16:30

FGV's Latin American Center for Public Policy (CLPP) and the Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program of the University of Pennsylvania (TTCSP) will hold, between today and Friday, July 10-12, the 2013 Latin American Think Tanks Meeting. The goal is to promote, among leading knowledge producing institutions in Latin America and the Caribbean, a debate on positive ways to contribute to the region's socioeconomic transformation process.

Today, starting from 7:30 p.m., a welcome dinner will take place with the Brazilian Ambassador, Marcos Azambuja, at the Copacabana Palace Hotel. Tomorrow at 9:30 a.m., the opening session at FGV's headquarters will include the presence of FGV's president, Carlos Ivan Simonsen Leal, and the program director of the University of Pennsylvania, James McGann.

During the three-day conference, representatives of think tanks from countries such as Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Mexico, Venezuela, among others, will discuss issues related to economics, politics and international cooperation.

Dr. Elena Lazarou, who is now Head of the Center for International Relations (CPDOC/FGV), participated as a panel moderator.

It is important to bear in mind that the International Relations Department of the University of Pennsylvania produces an annual ranking of top think tanks in the world. In 2013, for the fourth consecutive year, FGV was among the Top 30.
