Summer School 2019

The Summer School on Political Behaviour in Latin America offers doctoral students an opportunity to deepen their knowledge of theoretical and methodological debates on what explains individual level political behaviour and activity in Latin America today.

The Summer School builds on a successful tradition of supplemental workshops, which started in 2011 at the University of Salamanca and continued at the Institute of Social Science of the University of Lisbon in 2012, the German Institute of Global and Area Studies (GIGA) in Hamburg in 2013, the Latin American Centre of the University of Oxford together with the International Development Institute at King’s College London in 2015 and our most recent summer school, held at Diego Portales University in Santiago, Chile in the summer of 2017.

In 2019, the School of Global and Public Affairs at the IE University in Madrid, Spain, will host the summer school on its Campus in Segovia (Spain), housed in the historic building of the Convent of Santa Cruz la Real, a site of outstanding historical importance particularly for students of Latin America. Participants will benefit from direct interaction with leading faculty and other postgraduate researchers exploring political behaviour in its many facets, from political culture, elections and voting, women’s representation to populism.
