NorLARNet Conference 2011:

Collaborators or Contenders?
Norwegian Research, Business and Politics in Latin America

26-27 October 2011, Bergen Scandic Hotel

The second conference of Norwegian Latin America Research Network (NorLARNet) aims to bring together participants from the academic, business and governance ‘communities’ to discuss current patterns of change in the region, and possibilities for these communities to work closer together to better understand and affect positive change. Several questions are at the core of what the conference is trying to achieve: How can academic research prepare the political and business communities in their involvement with Latin America? How can Norwegian research, business and foreign policy contribute to ongoing positive trends in the region? What dangers are involved in our engagement?


The first day of the conference will be dedicated to broader plenary discussions on these questions involving participants from these ‘communities’. The second day will be focused on research presentations in parallel sessions.

The conference is open for participation. All meals and conference attendance will be covered for registered participants. Registration fee 400 NOK.

This is an invitation to submit proposals for sessions and abstracts of individual papers for the Second NorLARNet conference.
