The Latin America and Caribbean Centre (LACC) supports the research of faculty from nearly every department across the School whose research is principally focussed on or relevant to the region.
Research expertise covers themes on which Latin America and the Caribbean has been at the forefront of the social sciences and humanities such as democratisation, citizenship and human rights, decentralisation and governance, violence, inequality and inclusionary initiatives for women, indigenous groups and youth.
LSE research offers distinctive insights to state-building, nationalism and economic policy during the nineteenth century, and to the understanding of revolutionary movements, authoritarianism and Cold War geopolitics during the twentieth. Faculty have provided leading-edge research on economic liberalisation, innovation and property rights, fiscal reform, new financial instruments, risk assessments and regulation, as well as drug policies, urban planning and design, and the effects of climate change.
