Talking with Peruvian expert Carolina Trivelli

The 2016 Gus Hart Visiting Fellow at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs visited with Professor Denise Kripper’s “Spanish for International Relations” students before her evening lecture.

In addition to meeting with a small group of students, Carolina Trivelli presented a larger lecture about the future of Peru. She will also speak in Chicago at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs during her October fellowship.

Students welcomed her to campus with a small group discussion about Peru’s economy and rural finance, in Spanish, of course.

Trivelli is president of the board of Pagos Digitales Peruanos, a company running a Peruvian e-money national platform aiming to contribute to financial inclusion in Peru. She is also a senior researcher at the Instituto de Estudios Peruanos (IEP), a social sciences think tank that she led as Director General from 2001 to 2004. She serves as an independent executive committee member of the Consultative Group to Assist the Poor (CGAP) and of the Global Innovation Fund (GIF). She is also a columnist for Peru 21, a national newspaper.
