CIPR/Inter-American Dialogue joint seminar features Roberto Rubio and Salvador Samayoa

February 7th, 2014
8:30am

Location
Inter-American Dialogue, Washington D.C.

The Inter-American Dialogue and the Center for Inter-American Policy and Research at Tulane University is pleased to introduce another round table discussion on critical political and economic developments in Central America. We will meet on Friday, February 7 from 8:30 AM to 10:00 AM at the Dialogue for an extended exchange on the results and implications of the first round of El Salvador‘€™s presidential elections on February 2.

Our featured guests are two of El Salvador‘€™s leading political and social commentators‘€“Roberto Rubio, executive director of FUNDE, and Salvador Samayoa, a senior political analyst at FUSADES.

With multiple candidates from across the political spectrum‘€“including Vice President Salvador Sánchez Cerén of the ruling FMLN party, San Salvador Mayor Norman Quijano of ARENA, and former President Antonio Saca of the Unidad coalition‘€“the likelihood of a second round run-off in March is high. Whatever the outcome, the new president will face an exceptionally complex set of challenges‘€“a sluggish economy, intense political polarization, and a still highly dangerous, although slightly improving, security situation. The coming period may be the most difficult for the country to confront since the end of El Salvador‘€™s civil war in 1991.

The event will take place at the Inter-American Dialogue in Washington D.C. on February 7, 2014.
