Latin America

CGD’s work on Latin America covers a wide array of issues, among them financial development, inequality and growth, migration, and violence.

Our Latin America Initiative promotes research to better understand and tackle the development challenges facing the region. The Beyond the Fence Study Group produces research on the implications of policy decisions related to the US-Mexico border. CGD also hosts the Latin American Shadow Financial Regulatory Committee (CLAAF), a group of leading Latin American economists, chaired by Liliana Rojas-Suarez, which meets periodically in our headquarters to discuss regional financial issues and issue relevant policy recommendations.
