Surveying Latin American Legislatures

This proposal seeks to support a survey of Latin American legislators through a partnership with the University of Salamanca, Spain. Unlike standard mass surveys, this annual survey collects information directly from the policymakers, thus providing analysts invaluable information about politics and policy in the region. With support for three Pitt graduate students to conduct the the interviews, plus a GSA, the project provides students unparalleled access to the region’s policy makers. In providing these research opportunities and developing an international partnership, the project will attract top students, advance Pitt’s prestige, and support central goals underlined in the Plan for Pitt.
