Was founded in July of 1992
in order to encourage greater professional interaction and foster increased
dialogue among researchers and practitioners who focus their work on the
economies of Latin America and the Caribbean. The idea of creating such an
association of economists was first put into action during the April 1991
Washington, D.C. meetings of the Latin American Studies Association by Michael
Conroy, then a professor of economics at the University of Texas at Austin. At a
meeting attended by close to forty participants, a seven-member Organizing
Committee, led by Nora Lustig, was appointed. LACEA has since grown to an
organization with more than 400 active members.
