Latin America, home to more than half a billion people, is a diverse group of countries and regions. It spans two continents and two hemispheres. Its people and cultures derive from every part of the globe: from pre-Hispanic, American origins, others from Africa, Europe and Asia.

ANCLAS promotes research and teaching in Latin American Studies, particularly in the fields of the social sciences and humanities and economics.
