Chile Conference in the UK

The Chile Conference on Public Policy is supported by Luksic Scholars and organized by a group of Chilean graduate students in The UK, among them Valentina Rosas, a current Luksic Scholar studying public policy in Blavatnik School of Government at Oxford University.

The goal of the conference is to discover new problems in “red tape” policy areas, by asking what country do we want to be? This question will be tackled jointly with high-level speakers producing various outputs to disseminate ideas and proposals.

This meeting is the foundational milestone to promote Chilean students in the UK as the hub of future policy ideas and innovative-led solutions.

The event will be held on May 24 at the LSE School of Public Policy in London and on the 25th at the Blavatnik School of Government in Oxford, and will include the participation of Ambassador David Gallagher; former Minister Rodrigo Valdés, Chilean policymakers as Andrea Repetto, Antonio Bascuñán, and Augusto Iglesias, as well as important academics from the UK such as Nicholas Barr and Peter Ramsey.

Relevant themes such as the labor market and the fourth industrial revolution, impact investing, the taxation system, new criminal law, pensions systems and its challenges, smart cities and urban studies and the future challenges for social protection and poverty alleviation will all be addressed at this event.
