On being sworn into power on January 15, 2007, Ecuadorian President Rafael
Correa said: “Latin America is not living through an era of change, it is
living through a genuine change of eras.”

Fast forward to 2016 however, and the region looks very different. The past
year has seen the left lose a string of elections, and in some cases
governmental power. In other places, dubious judicial processes have been
used by the right to impeach those they could not beat at the ballot box.
