China’s increasing presence in Latin America and the Caribbean:
What are the implications for the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the EU?

What is the nature of the increasing presence of China in the LAC region, and what are the implications for the Kingdom of the Netherlands, the EU and also the US? This question is central to the research project that CEDLA has undertaken for the China Knowledge Network (funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ministry of Defence). On 9 September we will discuss important findings and policy recommendations with policy-makers, scholars and civil society.

Seminar: Crisis and cryptos in Latin America 

In this one-day seminar, organized by Social and Cultural Anthropology at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and the Centre for Latin American Research and Documentation at Universiteit van Amsterdam, we will plunge into Latin American and Caribbean realities of contemporary economic crisis and local worlds of cryptocurrency together with a group of interdisciplinary scholars (e.g. law, geography and environmental science, political science, and anthropology) that all work on expanding crypto economies. The focus areas will be on El Salvador and Venezuela– both Latin American and Caribbean economies that face steep economic challenges and protracted economic crises with local communities that are increasingly participating in crypto mining and crypto trading.
