Díaz-Alejandro, and to encourage high quality research on economic issues relevant to Latin America. Over 30 candidates nominated by members of the Association were considered for the 2016 Prize. To reach its decision, the Jury assessed the overall impact of the candidates' research, its relevance for Latin America´s development problems and the candidates' commitment to the Association.
