This is the only interview in the series that is a counterpoint.

When we thought about it, we said: "let’s do the most risky interview of the lot, the most speculative one, focusing on the future". The dream of a model for democracy in Latin America.

Our dear friends Matías Bianchi and Caio Tendolini lent us their great minds for this exercise. And they were generous, offering their hypotheses, their discoveries, their vision of the future of Latin American states and politics, and how they have come to understand "technology" as a paradoxical story, a space in dispute.

That afternoon, the rain was pouring down on top of the old laminating machine where we recorded the interview, and the leaks on the roof of the IMPA Cultural Center in Buenos Aires were right above our heads. This actually shows in some of the takes, and I can recall distinctly that we were freezing while trying to think.

Below, the full interview:


Politics Recovered is a series of interviews to 11 leading members of the Network of Political Innovation in Latin America. Taking advantage of the fact that they were meeting in Buenos Aires, Agustín Frizzera asked them what their vision of the new ways of doing politics is, and how do they approach the building of citizens’ rights and the inclusive use of technology.

What happens when asylum seekers are sent back into danger?

Most countries closed their borders over the pandemic, but for asylum seekers, deportation continued all over the world. More and more often, they are returned to the same life-threatening conditions that they fled.

To mark World Refugee Day on 20 June, and the launch of our multimedia project 'Parallel Journeys', join us as we explore returns without reintegration.

Speakers to be announced soon.
