On March 5-8, The Jarl Hjalmarson Foundation and Unión de Partidos Latinoamericanos (UPLA) held two parallel conferences about democracy for youth and women in San Salvador. The conferences received a lot of attention from Latin-American newspapers and agencies.

Eva Gustavsson, Managing Director of JHS, has been frequently quoted in the media with a comment on the political developments in the region: “For the last two years everybody when looking at Latinamerica watched what was happening with the governments of Bolivia and Venezuela, and Michelle Bachelet in Chile who had a very clear Socialist tendency. All that is now changing. We are seeing the reaction of the people that became fed up each time the government moved further to the left and with a clear dictatorial tendency”.
