Chile Elections

Chile Elections

Long held up as an example of a consolidated and well-functioning democracy, today Chile is being pulled in different directions. The social protests of 2019 triggered a constituent process toward a fairer and more participatory democracy. Yet the results of the recent first round elections threaten polarization and fragmentation. Freshly returned from Chile, where he was able to vote in the first round elections, Pablo Policzer discusses these trends in anticipation of the runoff elections of December 19.
