Felipe Cordero

I'm passionate about international relations and Latin America, especially about human rights and human development issues in the region. I join Global Voices with the conviction that accurate information about these issues can in fact improve the lives of many. I blog at http://mundopolitics.wordpress.com.

I earned a B.A. in Political Science from Westminster College in Missouri, U.S. Prior to this, I lived and studied at Lester B. Pearson College in Victoria, Canada. I have worked at Centro de Estudios del Desarrollo (CED) in Santiago, at the Rwanda Community Partnership Project in the U.S, and was a volunteer in the project Refugees in the Making of Peace in Sincelejo, Colombia in 2007.
