Liberty + Leadership: Understanding Chile’s Constitutional Conundrum

October 6, 2021

Webinar via Zoom


The Fund for American Studies (TFAS) and Universidad de los Andes (UANDES) invite you to participate in the second event in our online Liberty + Leadership Conversations: Understanding Chile’s Constitutional Conundrum with Juan Ignacio Brito and Sebastián Zárate.

Join us for a conversation with UANDES Professors Brito and Zárate about the political and social landscape in Chile’s process of drafting a new constitution.

On May 15 and 16, 2021, elections were held to form a Constituent Convention, whose mission is to draft a new constitution to be ratified by a national plebiscite. The 155 elected representatives have nine months to present a new constitutional text and were chosen in the midst of a succession of institutional and social crises that have kept the country in a turbulent government scenario.

This conversation will highlight both the process in which this initiative was conceived, as well as the challenges it has encountered in the first months of discussion. It will also establish the possible scenarios for Chile’s future development.

We invite you to come with questions so that you can participate in the dialogue.
