Latin America: the key themes that will shape the region’s outlook in 2022
Topic: As the easy gains from the reopening fade and policy support is quickly withdrawn, Latin America is headed towards its old equilibrium of low trend growth in 2022. Please join our Chief LatAm Economist, Marcos Casarin, as he discusses the challenges around a possible disorderly withdrawal of stimulus and the risks of social unrest and institutional deterioration in the region. A special focus will be given to the inflation outlook and the implications to monetary policy.

Africa: What to expect from elections in 2023
Thirteen African countries are scheduled to hold presidential or legislative elections this year. This webinar will focus on the four elections of greatest potential impact: Nigeria, home to the largest population in Africa; Zimbabwe, where the fractious and unloved Zanu-PF has already unleashed violence on its opponents; Gabon, where President Ali Bongo may try (again) to cheat to get a third term; and the DRC, where armed conflict is complicating the already massive task of registering 50 million voters across a territory the size of Western Europe. We will also touch on the elections in Eswatini, Libya, and Madagascar.Find Out More
