This fall presented Visiting Fellow Sara Niedzwiecki (Assistant Professor of Politics at the University of California, Santa Cruz) with several opportunities to present her book, Uneven Social Policies: The Politics of Subnational Variation in Latin America (Cambridge University Press, 2018), to scholars at several universities:
- Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Latin American Working Group (October 21,2020)
- University of California Berkeley's Comparative Politics Colloquium (November 12, 2020)
- Política Social Comparada en la Maestría de Política Social de la Universidad de Buenos Aires
Her book examines the conditions under which social policies are successfully implemented in decentralized countries such as Brazil and Argentina, and how politics and capacity at state and local levels shape the implementation of healthcare.
