Welcome to LACCOM.

LACCOM was a project from the Georgetown University Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS) that documented the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean between August of 2020 until April 2022 across three rubrics: Governance and the Rule of LawGrowth and Innovation, and Social and Cultural Inclusion.

Designed and supervised by CLAS’ Director of Academic Affairs, Prof. Angelo Rivero Santos, the content and technical aspects of the project were fully developed, managed and updated by an incredibly talented group of 32 undergraduate and graduate Georgetown University students affiliated with CLAS. As Latin America and Caribbean countries continue to adapt to the realities of living with COVID-19 we hope that the historical analysis and resources produced and collected during the life of the project serve as a useful tool for students, educators and researchers in the years ahead.
