Program Agenda

Nuestra America
"Latin America and the Global Economy: The Future of Nation Branding, Tourism and International Investment in Latin America"
(Berlin, March 9th - 12th, 2011, Held Parallel to the ITB Berlin)
www.icd-cdla.org

The years 2009-2011 mark the two hundred year anniversaries of the beginning of many Latin American Independence movements. It was two centuries ago that Mexico, Argentina, Colombia, Chile, Bolivia, Ecuador, Paraguay and Venezuela declared their independence. The years 1809-1811 therefore represent an important turning point in the history of Latin America, resulting in the emergence of new nation states and constituting the first step in the process of breaking from European colonial rule. The nature of this process remains an important talking point today.

As Latin American and the world celebrate these anniversaries, important questions remain as to how individual countries and the region as a whole should address challenges in the areas of poverty, development, security, public health, and national and international politics. Furthermore, current relations between Latin America, the USA and Europe, and the role that other regions and international stakeholders can play in supporting Latin America, remain fundamental issues to be clarified.

In ensuring stable economic and societal development, Latin American countries will rely heavily on their international images. A strong national brand will encourage tourism, investment, the immigration and retention of intellectual elites, and will enable a country to play more influential role in regional and global politics. Understanding and strengthening how their nation’s brand is understand, and can be shaped, is therefore one of the most important challenges facing governments, private companies, and civil societies in the region and abroad.

To enable academic analysis of the subject, and provide a platform for discussion on related fields, the ICD will host “Nuestra America” to explore the concept of nation branding and how Latin American governments, companies, and other stakeholders can engage with it.

Certificate of Attendance
All conference participants will be awarded an official certificate of attendance upon completion of the program, which will provide details of the speakers who took part and the topics discussed. Each certificate will be signed by two members of the ICD’s Advisory Board. (The ICD Advisory Board list can be found here).

Speakers
The speakers during the program will consist of experts and stakeholders in the Latin American Region from the fields of international politics, diplomacy, academia, the private sector, and civil society, from Latin America and across the world.

Participants
The conference is open to young professionals, students and scholars, diplomatic and political representatives, journalists, and civil society practitioners with an active interest in Latin America, from across the world.

In this regard, the ICD welcomes participants of the Conference to submit papers on this subject. The papers can cover any topic within these fields, according to your own particular interests and passions. Participants can submit work that they have completed in the past for other purposes, ongoing research or a paper written specifically for the conference. Groups of students are also allowed to submit collaborative pieces of work.

Sustainable Network
Conference participants will become part of a growing international network of people from across the world with different fields of interest and levels of experience, who share a commitment to intercultural exchange.
