Unrest in Ecuador: Post-Election Challenges

August 28 @ 10:00 am CDT

This event is being held virtually and is open to everyone.

As the youngest elected president in Ecuador’s history, President Daniel Noboa is determined to pave a new way forward for a country in crisis. Ecuador, a country with a rich history, vibrant cultural landscape and incredible geographic diversity, was one of the safest countries in Latin America as recently as 2019. In the last year, Ecuador has faced rising tension and gang violence, including a sharp increase in homicides and an on-air takeover of an influential TV news station this past January. With elections scheduled for February 2025, he has less than a year to address the nation’s security challenges while navigating diplomatic frictions and a struggling economy.

Join Global Minnesota and Glaeldys González Calanche, the Giustra Fellow for the Latin America and Caribbean Program of the International Crisis Group for a virtual webinar breaking down the challenges facing Ecuador, as well as the possibilities and opportunities for a positive future in Ecuador.
