With three new presidential administrations entering office in the last two months and six presidential elections in the year ahead, Latin America and the Caribbean are on track for what will be a highly consequential year with reverberations beyond national borders. Political unrest in Peru, Ecuador’s internal armed conflict, and a highly charged inauguration in Guatemala have already made headlines in just the first few weeks of 2024.

What might unfold across the region in 2024 – both the expected and the unexpected? How might global geopolitics shape developments? What could be the big surprise for the year ahead?   

On Monday, January 22, from 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. ET, the Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center virtually hosted a forward-looking discussion with top journalists on what the biggest stories for Latin America and the Caribbean could be in 2024. This conversation followed the recent release of our interactive publication: “2024 predictions: How ten issues could shape the year in Latin America and the Caribbean.” Check it out and see how your own predictions of what might happen this year stack up to our crystal ball.
