The second conference of Norwegian Latin American Research Network  (NorLARNet) aims to bring together participants from the academic, business and governance ‘communities’ to discuss current patterns of change in the region, and possibilities for these communities to work closer together to better understand and affect positive change.
    Several questions are at the core of what the conference is trying to achieve: How can academic research prepare the political and business communities in their involvement with Latin America? How can Norwegian research, business and foreign policy contribute to ongoing positive trends in the region? What dangers are involved in our engagement
    The first day of the conference will be dedicated to broader plenary discussions on these questions involving participants from these ‘communities’. The second day will be focused on research presentations in parallel sessions.
    The conference is open for participation. Conference attendance, lunch and dinner will be covered for registered participants. The registration fee is 400 NOK.

Date: 26th – 27th October 2011
