Date: 28 of february

Time: 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Place: G-406

In light of recent reports, the Masters in International Affairs Program is organizing a panel to analyze the geopolitical and financial risks that will impact Colombia in 2018.

Given the reports published by the International Monetary Fund, the World Economic Forum, and the Eurasia Group, the Conference “Risk country: perspectives for Colombia in 2018” will be held Wednesday, February 28, 2018. At the event, Professors Camilo Romero, of the Economics and Numerical Operations Observatory, and Javier Gray, of the International Systems Analysis Observatory, will discuss the risks of political and financial processes in Colombia, at local and international levels.

Although the reports use different methodologies and explore a variety of particular risks, they agree that issues such as environmental degradation, geopolitical tensions, economic wear, and technology, are matters requiring specific actions by global actors.

For Professor Garay, the panel proposes to raise a discussion on Global Governance from a theoretical and practical perspective, and generate a series of questions. Can Global governance deal with the different risks facing the States this year? Do they have the legality to do so and adequate leadership?

According to Ana María Bustamante, Academic Coordinator of the Masters in International Affairs, 2018 is not only a decisive year for Colombia’s national and international policy, but is, also a year filled with uncertainty and many unknowns to be resolved.

The above are a few of the topics discussed in the Masters in International Affairs, one of the Finance, Government and International Relations graduate programs with the longest trajectory in the country. The program combines the analysis of disciplines such as International Economics, International Relations, Global Governance, among others, for decision making in complex contexts.
