Afrontar las crisis desde América Latina

Bielefeld University Press Afrontar las crisis desde América Latina



The long-essay series Afrontar las crisis desde América Latina is edited by the Maria Sibylla Merian Center for Advanced Latin American Studies (CALAS). It deals with a broad variety of issues that demonstrate Latin America's significant experience in dealing with multiple crises. In facing these challenges, theoretical and empirical approaches are generated that are of importance not only for the region, but also for the general understanding and solving of the current problems of humanity.


The transdisciplinary research of CALAS focuses on critical questions of how crises and processes of change are triggered, accelerated, decelerated, perceived, and reflected by different actors. It asks what strategies for dealing with crises on multiple levels arise in the process and analyses how new approaches to problem solving – including transregional approaches – can be made more effective or institutionalized.

Each volume is reviewed (double-blind review) by a Steering Committee member of CALAS as well as by a member of the Scientific Advisory Board with a particular expertise in the respective topic of an essay.

The series is a collaboration between the publishing houses of Guadalajara University (Mexico), University of Costa Rica, University of San Martín (Argentina), FLACSO Ecuador and Bielefeld University Press and is funded by German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
