Latin American populism has now taken a radical turn. To analyze the roots of this phenomena, and its staying power, Hudson Institute's Center for Latin American Studies, in conjunction with the Institute for Foreign Policy Analysis, hosted a conference with leading experts in the field. How are leaders of the radical brand, namely Hugo Chavez and Evo Morales, coining the populist image and using it to their advantage? Could this resurgent populism be replicated elsewhere in Latin America? Is there a distinctly Latin response to the challenge of populism?
