October 01, 2004 // 9:30am12:30pm
Latin American Program
Twenty-five years ago at the Wilson Center, Fernando Henrique Cardoso, Guillermo O'Donnell, Philippe Schmitter, and Laurence Whitehead, with support from Abraham Lowenthal, who was then director of the Latin American Program, organized a project to consider the transitions from authoritarian regimes in Latin America and Europe. The Transitions Project was at the origin of almost twenty-five years of conceptual debate and empirical research on regime change and democratic governance throughout the world; it is time to take stock of what we have learned from this experience. It is our pleasure to invite you to a session on "The Study of New Democracies in Latin America and Elsewhere: Reflections on the 25th Anniversary of the ‘Transitions Project' at the Woodrow Wilson Center" featuring the three project co-directors and the then director of the Wilson Center's Latin American Program.
