Lessons from the Past and Perspectives for the Future

In this seminar, Prof. Paulo Figueiredo (FGV EBAPE) and Prof. Edmund Amann (Leiden University and John Hopkins), two highly experienced international scholars, will talk about “Innovation, Competitiveness and Development in Latin America. Lessons from the Past and Perspectives for the Future” title of their new book, published by Oxford University Press. This seminar is an opportunity to dive deep into this theme and to discuss with them some of Latin America's pressing issues, a comprehensive insight into why Latin America has struggled to grow and close the development gap with the advanced industrial economies. Moreover, a wide-ranging analysis of Latin America's growth and development challenges based on evidence from across the region, including major economies and smaller, often overlooked, cases. 

Prof. Paulo Figueiredo is part of the faculty for MSc & PhD in Administration, Professional Master´s in Public Administration (MAP) and Executive Master´s in Business Administration (MEX) at FGV EBAPE. He has invited Prof. Edmund Amann to examine specific questions, including: What are the best forms of policy intervention to help Latin America overcome its structural impediments and seize emerging global opportunities? What institutional obstacles prevent the implementation of effective policies? How could the region avoid missing opportunities regarding new windows of technological, learning, demand, and institutional opportunities in the future?

The event will be held in English, but participants will be able to ask their questions in Portuguese.
