In light of persisting economic uncertainty and a labor market in flux, The New School’s Observatory on Latin America (OLA) presents Creating Jobs in a Time of Global Crisis: Lessons from Latin America. Carlos Tomada, the minister of labor and social security for Argentina from 2003-2013 and Jose Antonio Ocampo, Columbia University professor of economics and former UN under-secretary general for economic and social affairs, will analyze and discuss employment strategies in Latin America.
“By providing a platform where experts can discuss the issues pertaining to employment in the region, the Observatory of Latin America advances the discourse through reflection and analysis,” said Michael Cohen, Director, OLA and the Julien J. Studley Graduate Program in International Affairs at The New School. “Argentina has provided a provocative case study about what is truly possible in the critical area of jobs.”
The panel will take place on Monday, April 1 from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Theresa Lang Community and Student Center at 55 West 13th Street. Admission is free—write firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve seats.
