CALACS: Mapping Out New Area Studies for Development

The Canadian Association for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CALACS) has undergone a number of changes in the last two years, relocating its secretariat to a stronger institutional host, revising its strategy and changing the way it supports development-oriented knowledge activities on the part of its membership. This grant will enable CALACS to improve program delivery, engage with a broader constituency and disseminate knowledge about the region more effectively. It is also expected that during the life of the project, CALACS will increase its membership, diversify its sources of funding, and enlarge its published output (scholarly publications, policy papers, special session and workshop reports, etc.).
