The SecDev Foundation’s Director of Research & Public Policy, Robert Muggah, is participating in the World Economic Forum on Latin America 2015.
“In its 10th year, the World Economic Forum on Latin America returns to Mexico to collaborate in Latin America’s transition to long-term economic growth and social development. Mexico, one of the leading economies in Latin America and current holder of the pro-tempore presidency of the Pacific Alliance, has made advances on a variety of critical reforms – including important changes to education, energy, fiscal and telecommunications legislation – which are already opening new opportunities. The meeting will provide an ideal platform for committed decision-makers to set a bold renovation agenda and take the initiative on the new generation of Latin American investments and transformational projects.”
Robert will be participating in the following events at the World Economic Forum on Latin America:
- The Changing Security Landscape in Latin America: exploring the changing security landscape and the impact of new geopolitical dynamics and security risks on society
- Technology: Debates of Tomorrow: engaging participants to think together about the future they want when it comes to technology and regional challenges (what kind of technology-enabled future do we want to live in? what do we want to avoid? which questions remain?)
- Societies that Thrive: Promoting Stability in Latin America: a multi-stakeholder discussion on some of the most pressing challenges in the region, in order to identify areas of common ground, ensure civic participation in policy planning and reform and enable more effective and courageous action on critical issues
- Building Secure Societies: Discussing what can be done to break the cycle of organized crime and public insecurity?
The World Economic Forum will take place in the Riviera Maya, Mexico from May May 6-8, 2015.
