DRCLAS AND THE REGIONAL OFFICE
Brian D. Farrell
"The demonstrated success of the DRCLAS Office in Santiago inspired the establishment of a second overseas office in 2006 in Sao Paulo, Brazil and in 2012 of an office in Mexico City. Today, other Harvard centers are following our model in establishing offices in Shanghai and Johannesburg."Watch
"I think these chapters reflect very well the value of having a Harvard Office in Santiago, Chile. I want to thank Paula for her generosity in sharing this eBook with us. The testimonies collected by her serve as an inspiration for continuing our work and for building new bridges between Harvard and the region."Watch
