The Process, Promise, and Perils of Making A New Constitution for Chile

Thursday, April 21, 2022 4:00 pm EST

Chile is currently engaged in the process of drafting an entirely new constitution, through a distinctive process that has generated a great deal of attention and controversy. The new constitutional text will be considered in a referendum this coming summer. This panel of Kellogg-affiliated scholars will discuss the historical, political, and juridical context, content, and implications of the Chilean constitutional revision, from both national and international perspectives.

While a livestream option will be available, enabling a broader reach worldwide, questions and discussion will be only from the in-person audience. Join us on Thursday, April 21, 2022, from 4:00 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. ET.
