    O objetivo deste estudo é examinar os determinantes do investimento direto externo (IDE) na America Latina, com ênfase ao impacto das variáveis institucionais sobre a decisão de investir das empresas multinacionais (EMN). Com apoio na revisão teórica e metodológica, um modelo de painel de dados é estimado para um conjunto de países da América Latina. Os resultados indicam que, na perspectiva da busca de mercados locais ou regionais, fatores institucionais – como grau de liberdade econômica e risco político – são estatisticamente significantes para explicar a atração de IDE.
