Learning outcomes

At the end of the course the student will have acquired the tools to understand the economic history of Latin America from 1870 to today and to analyze the problems of globalization and development from the historical and conceptual point of view.


Latin America in the global economy (1870-2015)
The proposal for a course on contemporary economic history in Latin America is linked to a number of reasons. First of all, the historical trajectory of Latin America is a topic of particular interest in debates on the factors that influence economic development. In fact, the Latin American case refers to a series of key points in these debates, including the relationship between income distribution and development, the role of institutions (including the links between democracy and development), or the effects of the degree of integration in world trade. In this regard, the course will contribute to a reflection on the problems of development from the historical and conceptual point of view. Secondly, the proposal is based on the fact that the contemporary economic history of Latin America is central to the comparative history of developing countries. Indeed, as Alexander Gerschenkron made a contribution to the study of the industrialization of the late comer countries in Europe, more recent authors have focused on Latin America as a scenario of the so-called late-late-industrialization. Although Latin America as a whole is not among the poorest regions of the planet, it has not yet managed to overcome the stage of "intermediate development". This has led many scholars to try to explain it in comparative terms, pointing out in particular the contrasts with the industrialized countries of Asia. This last aspect refers in turn to the effects of globalization in different regions of the planet, given that while Latin America generally enjoyed success during the first globalization, Asian countries were the great winners of the second. In this framework, the program of the course will focus primarily on the economic history of Latin America between 1870 and 2015, which will examine the main stages (export-led growth, state-led industrialization, pro-market reforms) and performance. Therefore, starting from the concrete historical experience, the course will include on the one hand the debates on the causes of the limits of its development and on the other the comparison with the success of the new industrialized countries of Asia, articulating history and theory, and comparative history .

Double degree

The University of Verona, through a network of agreements with foreign universities, offers international courses that enable students to gain a Double/Joint degree at the time of graduation. Indeed, students enrolled in a Double/Joint degree programme will be able to obtain both the degree of the University of Verona and the degree issued by the Partner University abroad - where they are expected to attend part of the programme -, in the time it normally takes to gain a common Master’s degree. The institutions concerned shall ensure that both degrees are recognised in the two countries.

Places on these programmes are limited, and admissions and any applicable grants are subject to applicants being selected in a specific Call for applications.

The latest Call for applications for Double/Joint Degrees at the University of Verona is available now!
