Latin America-related online events this week

This is what I’ve seen. As most places cancel events, I may have missed some that are switching to a webinar format. Also, I’m used to searching for DC-area events, not online events everywhere. If you know of any other public online events of interest to Latin America—anywhere in the world, not just in Washington—let me know in the comments, and I’ll add them.

Friday, March 20, 2020

  • 9:30–11:00 at Beyond the ‘Narcostate’ Narrative: Addressing Organized Crime and Corruption in Venezuela (RSVP required).
  • 12:00–1:30 at Petroleum & Politics – South America’s Smaller and Emerging Oil & Gas Producers (RSVP required).
