Event description

Description

Lecture co-hosted by LSE Institute of Global Affairs, LSE Latin America and Caribbean Centre and Firoz Lalji Centre for Africa

Research and policy to date have focused on the security, political and social aspects of the war-to-peace transition. Dr Del Castillo’s new book focuses on “economic transition” and “the political economy” of peace, which is a much-neglected aspect of peacebuilding.

Graciana del Castillo is senior fellow at the Ralph Bunche Institute and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. With a Ph.D. in Economics from Columbia University, she was senior research scholar, associate director of the Center for Capitalism & Society and adjunct professor there for many years. Dr. del Castillo designed the Salvadoran arms-for-land program, which USG Marrack Goulding credited for bringing the peace process back on track, played a key role in jumpstarting the Kosovo economy, devised the concept of ‘reconstruction zones,’ and with different hats advised on peacebuilding strategies for Afghanistan, Liberia, Haiti, Syria, and Colombia.

Gareth A. Jones is the Director of the Latin America and Caribbean Centre, as well as Professor of Urban Geography in the Department of Geography and Environment at LSE and an Associate Member of the International Inequalities Institute.

Opened in January 2016 to serve as a focal point for LSE’s research and public engagement with Latin America and the Caribbean, the LSE Latin America and Caribbean Centre builds upon the School’s long and important relationship with the region.

Based at LSE, the Firoz Lalji Centre for Africa promotes independent academic research and teaching; open and issue-oriented debate; and evidence-based policy making. The Centre accomplishes this by connecting different social science disciplines and by working in partnership with Africa bringing African voices to the global debate.
