  1. How to classify leftist movements and parties in Latin America?
  2. The diversity of Lefts

In the 1990s, a political tendency to the left took place in many Latin American countries, numerous leftist politicians came to power simultaneously. A few examples should be mentioned, such as Chavez in Venezuela, Lula in Brazil, Nestor Kirchner in Argentina or Michelle Bachelet in Chile. This outstanding change of political power was depicted by historians and political scientists as a global phenomenon of 'left about-turn'. We will examine this 'left about-turn' in depth and assess the current situation of the left in Latin America, going by specific examples.
