With the participation of analyst Marcos Novaro as guest speaker, CADAL organized a new meeting of Foro Latinoamericano Buenos Aires. Among other issues, Novaro referred to the following questions: Will national competence reduce or can it reemerge, even with a weak and fragmented opposition? Is it possible that CFK wins with more than 50% of the votes? Will there be a "profundization of the model" in the direction of a populist radicalization? Can traditional peronism, non-peronist oposition and/or businessmen be a barrier to the "profundization of the Kirchnerist model"?
The Forum was moderated by Historian Ricardo López Göttig, member of CADAL's Academic Council, and among the participants were the ambassadors of Belgium and Czech Republic.
