Latin America has been inundated with global flows (economic, financial, criminal, migration, cultural and religious) at the same time as being propelled beyond its borders, to North America and further, on a globalised stage.

This seminar takes place at the Fondation Maison des sciences de l’homme, 54 bd Raspail, 75006, Paris.
