Statement on Values

The Conference of Latin Americanist Geographers (CLAG) is a pan-hemispheric organization that has promoted the scholarly inquiry of Latin American geography since its inception in 1970. Through its support of research, publications, conferences, and other forms of outreach CLAG seeks to foster a better understanding of Latin America’s  environments and peoples, including their social, economic, and political conditions. CLAG understands those conditions through the interconnections and interdependencies with other peoples and places.  CLAG believes that scholarly inquiry can make invaluable contributions to society and to the well-being of Latin Americans and North Americans alike—wherever they may live.  CLAG believes that academic freedom, without fear, intimidation, or threats is a necessary condition for that scholarship and the mutual understanding that it fosters.
