Argentina and Chile: Democracy and Integration
Prof. Jorge Arrate

Both Chile and Argentina have undergone significant change in the last 20 years. This class will compare the experiences of the two countries as they moved from dictatorship to democracy and from conflict to integration. The Argentine situation will be covered in depth, especially the 2001 crisis. Relations between Chile and Argentina will also be examined, as well as their respective interactions with regional leader, Brazil.
