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.

of Chile and at Harvard University. He has been a faculty member
at the University of Chile, the University of Santiago, Catholic
University of Chile and UC Berkeley. He was a Minister in the
Allende, Aylwin and Frei administrations and the Ambassador of
