Five former Latin American heads of state assessed the quality and development of democracy in Latin America and led discussions on civic education and youth engagement at a Global Peace Leadership Conference in Brasília, Brazil on November 12-13, 2015.

The former heads of state—Luis Alberto Lacalle and Carlos Mesa (Uruguay), Jaime Paz Zamora (Bolivia), Nicolás Ardito (Panama) and Vinicio Cerezo (Guatemala)—joined Brazilian government and civil society leaders on the conference theme “Brazil: Towards National Transformation: Development and Integrity through Moral and Innovative Leadership.” The former heads of state interacted with the audience to critically reflect on current priorities of the country and collaboratively develop proposals to address important issues facing the nation’s development.

The conference was hosted at the University of Brasilia (UnB) and sponsored by the Human Rights Chamber Commission in partnership with Global Peace Foundation.
