The Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), José Miguel Insulza, and the President of Mexico, Enrique Peña Nieto, today opened the IV Latin American Democracy Forum, whose theme is "Governing the future. Latin American democracy in 2020.”
The fourth edition of the Forum, held at the headquarters of the Colegio de Mexico, has high-level participants including former presidents, senior government officials, political party representatives, academics and representatives of civic organizations and the media, to discuss the challenges of Latin American democracy by 2020 under a comprehensive vision that includes political, social, economic and electoral aspects.
During three days of meetings, panels will bring together information and practical experience on governance in the region, and how to address the strengthening and consolidation of democracy in Latin America from the perspective of the challenges posed by inequality and poverty. The Forum is co-organized by the OAS, Mexico's Federal Electoral Institute (IFE), the Colegio de México, the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (International IDEA) and the International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES).
