Apruebo por Chile: Charting a Future in the Aftermath of Defeat

Winter 2020 Vol 54 NO.4

This issue of NACLA Report seeks to examine the social, political, and economic landscape in Chile as it navigates the waves of more than three years of social and political conflict. In the wake of the Rechazo vote, this issue created a space for scholars and activists to think through both the recent past and future as various sectors of the Chilean Left begin to chart a new course forward. Essays authored by leading scholar-activists engage the questions of “what went wrong” and “what comes next” head on.

Read the full editor’s introduction and explore more from this issue.
