Special Event

Flash Conversation: Chilean Constitution


Join us for an informal discussion of the Chilean constitutional plebiscite. On Sunday, September 4, 2022, 62% of Chilean voters rejected the constitutional draft proposed by the Constitutional Convention. After the popularly elected Convention deliberated for a year, the decisive result of the plebiscite was surprising even for the opponents of the project. What explains the popular rejection of the Convention's work? What is next for Chile? Will this result extend the social crisis initiated in 2019? Faculty fellows and former visiting fellows of the Institute will help us decipher these important questions.
