Society for Latin American studies

Founded in 1964, the Society for Latin American Studies is a learned society that studies all aspects of Latin American society and culture. It is one of the leading Latin American studies organisations in Europe, with around 400 members. While most are academics and PhD students, members also include diplomats, journalists, and research analysts from business and non-governmental organisations.


Since its creation in 1964, the Centre for Latin American Research and Documentation (CEDLA), hosted by the University of Amsterdam, has promoted Latin American Studies in the Netherlands, Europe and beyond. This is done by conducting and stimulating relevant and original research on developments in Latin America and distributing the results of this research via academic education and publications. CEDLA’s library is considered Europe’s second largest collection of material on Latin America. Since July 2015, CEDLA is part of the Faculty of the Humanities of the University of Amsterdam.
