Atilio Borón (Ph.D. Political Science, Harvard University, 1976) has lectured and written widely on the relationship between states, markets, and democracy under processes of neoliberal restructuring, particularly in Latin America and Western Europe. On a more theoretical level, he is interested in the challenges posed by neoliberal restructuring to the survival of political democracy in peripheral countries. Professor Borón is the author of State, Capitalism and Democracy in Latin America (1995) and Tras el búho de Minerva: Mercado contra democracia en el capitalismo de fin de siglo (2000).

Professor Borón's presentation is co-sponsored with the Paulo Freire Institute, UCLA Graduate School of Education and Information Studies.
