From 2004-2012, CIPE worked with the Political Science Institute – Hernán Echavarría Olózaga, based in Bogotá, Colombia, to publish a quarterly Spanish-language print magazine, Perspectiva. Thanks to the rapid expansion of internet service throughout the region, ICP recognized the opportunity to share information with a greater number of people and create an interactive platform for discussion on regional economic and democratic issues. Thus, in June 2012, ICP launched RevistaPerspectiva.com, a digital platform that provides citizens with access to information on politics, economics, and social topics from around the region and beyond.
