    The registration for the CEDLA courses are now open. UvA students can register through SIS, other students/non-students can register through our digital registration form on our website. We are offering nine BA courses, with themes ranging from history and the war on drugs, to gender and politics. The MA courses focus on natural resources, cultural resources, communities and nature and the new urban transition in the region.
    The BA courses can be combined into a Minor in Latin America Studies. Students who would like to obtain a minor in Latin America studies should register for the Basiscursus, which is an obligatory course for the minor. This can be complemented by other BA courses of CEDLA, until the students has obtained 30 ECTs. +INFO

  • ENGOV Publications

    The books ‘Environmental Governance in Latin America’ (Palgrave 2016) and ‘Gobernanza Ambiental en América Latina’ (CLACSO 2015, also available in Portuguese), written by the key researchers of the ENGOV project, study the nature of contemporary environmental governance in Latin America and the possibilities for more sustainability and socio-environmental justice. The books make a distinction between the historical and current social and economic context in which the use of nature takes place. Important contemporary political changes in environmental governance are discussed, and new initiatives are analyzed. The books are Open Access and available online. They can also be purchased in print at CLACSO in Argentina (Spanish and Portuguese), and in hardcover and softcover book from Palgrave MacMillan (English version).
