Buenos Aires Chapter
The Buenos Aires Chapter (SID-Baires) was created at the end of 1957, by a group of Argentinean intellectuals and scholars - like theeconomist Raul Prebish - committed to promote critical thinking and dialogue around development ideas on the eve of the increased attention and interest to new strategies for development, taking place in Argentina - at that time run by the Desarrollista government of Arturo Frondizi, as well as in the rest of the world. The chapter - known as 'Argentine Chapter' changed the name to 'Buenos Aires Chapter' in 2000, following the creation of two new chapters in the cities of Rosario and La Plata. The Buenos Aires Chapter is one of the oldest chapter of SID that has engaged consistently and continuously for more than 50 years in activities and programmers addressing development questions and processes from a both national and international perspective.
The Buenos Aires Chapter seeks to become a hub for holistic, multi-disciplinary and multi-sectoral thinking able to contribute to the construction of a vision of development that is harmonic, inclusive and sustainable.
SID-Baires is divided in departments that debate and produce critical thinking and propose public policies for Argentinaís complex reality. A series of policy dialogues are carried out with the aim of exploring and better understanding what model of development is suitable for Argentina and for Latin America as a whole. In that effort, the Chapter has set up a virtual newsroom to produce opinion pieces and analysis - published on the national press - presenting the main findings and key issues emerging in the discussions. In 2010, the first issue of SID-Baires new magazine and a new website will be launched.
