Values in the Time of Crisis: Learnings from Latin America

Panel Code
Open Panel
In Person

This panel discusses the implications of crises - such as COVID, inflation, political instability, etc. – on value transformation in Latin America. Worldwide, preliminary reports show that levels of institutional trust, interpersonal trust, values, and other socio-cultural variables have been affected by COVID-19 measures. The panel seeks to discuss how these effects are shaped by the Latin American context and how the type of government response to the different crises moderates the effect of COVID-19 and other external shocks.
The panel contributes to the dialogue between scholars and practitioners about the consequences of external shocks on citizens’ values in Latin America. We especially encourage paper submissions that use data from World Values Survey or the project Values in a Crisis (VEC).
