Elections Series: Chile — General
Author: Matthew Lisiecki
On Sunday, November 21, voters in Chile will go to the polls to elect a new president, along with 27 new senators and all 155 seats in the Chamber of Deputies. In order to understand the political landscape in Chile leading up to the election, EGAP has convened a panel of Chilean political scientists to give their thoughts on the main issues at stake, as well as the implications of the election.
- Fernando Rosenblatt is an associate professor of political science at the Universidad Diego Portales in Santiago, and is also a member of the EGAP network. His research focuses on party system institutionalization, party activism, party organizations, governance, and the political economy.
- Cristóbal Rovira Kaltwasser is a professor of political science at the Universidad Diego Portales, and is an associate researcher at the Centre for Social Conflict and Cohesion Studies. His research primarily focuses on the ambivalent relationship between populism and democracy.
