8th NOLAN Conference “Struggle over Resources in Latin America”

The 8th Nordic Latin American Research Network (NOLAN) Conference “Struggle over Resources in Latin America” will be held at the University of Helsinki in June 11-13, 2015.

Debates about Latin American development have seen old themes return in a new guise. For some, the electoral victories of various shades of left during the first years of the new millennium seemed to signal a break with older development models. Others talked about the return of state-centered policies associated with classical Latin American developmentalism. More recently, the importance of natural resources has become an increasingly hot topic in the debates. During the first decade of the millennium there was much talk of a boom of commodities, especially since the demand in China and India raised the prices for Latin American soy bean, copper and other raw material exports. Now the boom has slowed down. The ecological and social impact of the resource-exporting models, often called extractivism, are under heavy criticism by various social movements. Even if various of the left-leaning governments have been reelected, there is less clarity than before about the future of the development models.

Panel proporsals will be received until December 15, 2014.
