BeExSampa took place from 5 to 8 December with combined live and hybrid seminars. The main focus was on Latin America’s Dynamics of Democracy and Autocratization: Researching Autocratization and Resistance: Theoretical, Methodological and Ethical Challenges
A range of theoretical, methodological, and ethical challenges take place when we engage in research on autocratization and democracy. Focusing on the Latin America scenario, while also considering comparative dialogues with countries all over the world in different stages of autocratization, the conference will contribute to comparative analyses of the dynamics of democracy and autocratization in the region, including discussions on the role of courts, police violence, contestations over land, indigenous rights, sexual and reproductive right and climate and environmental politics.
