positively affecting the lives of Latin Americans. We will be providing a forum and resource for education policy research, our work focuses on key issues impacting the countries of North, Central and South America. That is Latin American countries, 23 Spanish speaking countries.
The LA Lab Interactive Website will bring together key stakeholders and experts to facilitate development and dissemination of research as well as identification and analysis of best practices, the plan being to promote new cross-sectorial collaboration and partnerships in educational research. The Website will provide information on conferences and events and will allow an active interaction of scholars, through participation in online discussions and provision of reviews and other materials. We have established five priority areas for LA Lab, including: Educational Access and Social Security; Immigration, Migration; Global Citizenship; The involvement of Asia and Europe in Latin America; and Best Practices in Education (Split into primary, secondary, post-secondary and popular education). We are seeking funding in the region of $250,000 over two years to establish the institute, design and develop a world-class website, fund meetings and travel expenses, and provide partial funding for the administrative and graduate students who will dedicate their time to the project. We are also working with another foundation to acquire resources for the establishment and long-term sustainability of the think tank.

We are establishing open channels of communication and collaboration across the region if we are to address growing concerns about educational opportunity for underserved, and at-risk youth.
Our focus is health, diabetes and obesity studies, in the Latino population.
Too many youth are being left behind by the new global economy, and foundations must be established at every level to ensure that these students are given the educational access and opportunity necessary to secure their individual and collective futures. We further believe that education is an essential feature of democracy and building global citizens who can ensure that their interests are better represented at the local, national and international levels. The development of a Global forum on educational policy research contributes to this by ensuring that a wider range of stakeholder interests are better represented at the crucial intersections of local, national, and international levels. We believe the collection of experts we are bringing together have the power to facilitate policies and information sharing that can benefit those in Latin America left behind by the new global economy and provide new, innovative solutions to the most pressing issues facing the region. The Organization LA Lab brings together an impressive array of talent and experience across the Americas starting with director Carlos Alberto Torres, one of the preeminent experts on education in Latin America in the world. The organization will involve three boards overseeing the operations: a Distinguished International Scholarly Board, a UCLA Scholarly Board and the Board of Editors, working under Director Torres and based in the Graduate School of Education and Information Studies. Key Advisors Include: Bernard Kliksberg, Special Advisor to the Bureau for Policy Development of the United Nations Development Programme (a pioneer of ethics for development and business social responsibility and one of the chief proponents fighting global poverty). Norberto Fernandez Lamarra, Professor, National University of Tres de Febrero in Argentina, who is a specialist, researcher and national and international consultant in the area of policy, planning and management of education. Moacir Gadotti, Professor, Faculty of Education, University of São Paulo (USP) and Director of the Paulo Freire Institute in São Paulo (a leading experts on Paulo Freire and Ecopedagogy). Pedro Noguera, Peter L. Agnew Professor of Education at New York University, a renowned sociologist whose scholarship and research focuses on the ways in which schools are influenced by social and economic conditions, as well as by demographic trends in local, regional and global contexts. Olga M. Lazín, UCLA, who is a researcher and has taught throughout universities in Mexico in the area of education and globalization of technology. Luis Moreno-Ocampo, Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court since 2003 and previously a consultant to the World Bank, Inter-American Development Bank and United Nations. Marcelo Suárez-Orozco, Dean and Distinguished Professor of Education, UCLA GSE&IS, and one of the preeminent experts in the world on mass migration, globalization, and education.

Wilkie, UCLA Professor of History & Policy Analysis, who is the Editor of the Statistical Abstract of Latin America and Director of the Lain American Oral History Program, which interviews Latin American Leaders by combining autobiographical and biographical approaches. We have also gained commitments from: Peter Mayo, Professor, Department of Education Studies, University of Malta, ‘ Douglas Kellner, UCLA Professor of Education, Kevin Terraciano, Director, UCLA Latin American Institute, Hugo Hopenhayn, Director, UCLA Center for Argentina, Chile and the Southern Cone, Karin Nielsen, MD, Director, UCLA Center for Brazilian Students, David Hayes-Bautista, Director, UCLA Center for the Study of Latino Health and Culture. In addition to these key scholarly advisors, we have a vast global network of scholars, activists and practitioners associated with the worldwide Paulo Freire Institutes. Methodology We believe that the Internet provides a unique new space for engaging in meaningful dialogue and information sharing on key policy questions, building networks and momentum for positive social change. LA Lab seeks to provide an essential forum for the engagement in issues related the Americas, bringing together an expert assemblage of scholars, researchers, policymakers and practitioners working in the region. The LA Lab Website will house all of our research and policy papers, identify best practices work at different levels of education, video mini-lessons available to those doing policy and educational planning throughout the region, policy reviews, as well as an Academic Journal featuring the most up-to-date research on public policy and education in Latin America. Contributions from the key players mentioned above, and other contributors who will be invited, will provide weekly updates on policy and practices across the region of interest to key stakeholders, practitioners and policymakers. Our goal is to explore all areas of policy reform including mechanisms for legitimating policies, building a constituency, accumulating and mobilizing resources and monitoring progress. Thus, we see applied research as providing the most useful analytical tools serving at-risk and underserved students, together with policy papers by experts in academia and the policy arena. We hope to build networks and collaborative teams that can work to advocate for education policies and reform that can improve the lives of Latin Americans. We have already established the initial design of the website and blog with consultation from a team of consultants, believing this is the best space to engage in the important policy debates of our team. Conclusion LA Lab is needed in establishing a truly global think tank that can impact policy and practice at the local, national and global level throughout the Americas. As the impact of media culture grows, it is incumbent upon us to capitalize on these new spaces to share information and knowledge, foster networks and collaboration, influence policymakers at all levels of government and create avenues for increased understanding and interaction. Support in the form of funding would go a long way in helping us to establish the interactive website, to hold meetings to further solidify the organization of the think tank, to undertake research and write policy papers, disseminate information through a variety of venues and strengthen our network and connections with those doing work in the field – helping us to realize our vision of becoming a key player in the region, and in the world, combining the work of scholars, practitioners and policymakers to make the world a better place by fostering Global Citizenship.”
