The Graduate Program in Economics at the University of Brasilia, in collaboration with the YSI Latin American Workgroup, invites you to participate in the “1ST Latin American Dialogues: Economic Perspectives on Underdevelopment”. We are excited to have your involvement in this event. The event will be held in the Faculdade de Administração, Contabilidade, Economia e Gestão Pública at the University of Brasília and part of the paper presenters will receive partial financial support from YSI Latin American Workgroup. The supports are a $150,00 stipend for travel and a double hotel room. For those who cannot attend in-person, the event will be held in a hybrid format.

The theme concerns the Latin American economy, mainly concerning recent political cycles (2016-Brazil, 2018-Brazil, 2022-Brazil, 2023-Argentina, among others). These movements have affected the entire political and democratic structure of the countries, which justifies the need for political and economic investigation in the academic field. Therefore, the importance of an international event in the Brazilian capital becomes unquestionable. The event proposed here will feature 3 days of intense activities, involving discussion panels and work presentations. This year, the event will be in honor of Professor Mauro Boianovsky who recently died and was a Professor at the Department of Economics at the University of Brasilia. We are also creating the “Mauro Boianovsky Award” and the “Mauro Boianovsky Magna Class”, both will be a permanent event activity.


Please submit your abstract in either English or Portuguese. Please be aware that the event will be conducted in English.
