Webinar | The Americas: Civil unrest ahead?


Dragonfly is pleased to invite you to a briefing looking at the likelihood of another civil unrest crisis unraveling in the Americas this year.

Brazil and Peru have experienced high-profile bouts of unrest this year. And a combination of anti-incumbency sentiment, poor economic outlook and political inertia make prolonged periods of large and violent protests likely elsewhere in the Americas region for the remainder of 2023.

In this briefing, we will discuss which countries are most at risk of a civil unrest crisis this year, the main triggers for such crises, as well as the impact these are likely to have on regional supply chains.

We will cover:

  • The main issues driving unrest in the region, including socioeconomic and political grievances
  • Which countries in the Americas are most vulnerable to bouts of unrest
  • An assessment of an acute crisis in Argentina and Guatemala ahead of elections this year
  • Demonstrators’ tactics and the risks these pose for supply chains in the region

This will take place on Thursday, 18 May 2023 at 1600hrs London / 1700hrs Paris / 1100hrs New York / 1900hrs Dubai.

We look forward to you joining. Places are limited and preference will be given to Dragonfly clients. This briefing will be available to clients who are not able to attend via the SIAS website as a recording following the live session.
