The Taliban 2.0: A return to history?

Winds of change: Political uncertainty surrounds Chile’s elections

Chile’s November elections arrive as the country is in the process of rewriting its constitution. The victor of the elections is as yet unclear, but whichever candidate takes office, they will have to oversee the implementation of a new constitution. Recent mass unrest in Chile over a range of socio-economic issues shows the country is far from resolving its various challenges. With the new constitution potentially challenging some long-standing societal arrangements and priorities, businesses may face stricter regulations for operating in the country.
