INDS 185 Guatemala: Innovations in Development

Guatemala is a country at the crossroads. Free from the instability generated by the civil war, it is a developing country. Strides have been made towards an economy where markets prevail and citizens find opportunities for entrepreneurship. The experience includes visits to markets that emerged spontaneously, a coffee plantation, and a volcano. Guest lectures address the architecture, cultural heritage, political and security environment, and challenges facing Guatemala.
