Peru After the Elections: A Panel Discussion

Peru After the Elections: A Panel Discussion

Wednesday 22nd June 2011
4pm - 6pm

Committee Room 4a
Palace of Westminster

Following a tightly-run contest, left-of-centre candidate Ollanta Humala narrowly defeated Keiko Fujimori on 5th June 2011 to become Peru’s next president. But what will the new administration look like and what will be the major political, economic and social challenges it is likely to face over the next five years?

To analyse the implications of Humala’s victory for Anglo-Peruvian relations and for human rights and development in the country, the Peru Support Group, Christian Aid and CAFOD will be hosting a panel discussion in the UK parliament on 22nd June. Confirmed speakers are:

LORD AVEBURY (Chair) - President of the Peru Support Group

PAULO DRINOT - Senior Lecturer, Latin America (Institute for the Study of the Americas)

ÁLVARO GARCÍA - Campaigner, South America Team (Amnesty International)

FIONA CLOUDER - South America Head (Foreign and Commonwealth Office)

EMMA REYNOLDS MP – Shadow Foreign Office Minister (Labour)

This is a public event and all are welcome to attend. You should use St Stephen's entrance and allow 20 minutes to pass through parliament security.
