The International and the Domestic: Latin America and U.S. Policies and Politics

Description

Trade, immigration, and energy security have all emerged as key domestic policy issues for the next administration. Yet beyond their appeal to American voters, they are each shaped by Latin America and U.S.-Latin America relations. This symposium will explore the expanding links between the United States and Latin America, and examine U.S. domestic and foreign policies addressing this complex set of issues.

This symposium is made possible by the generous support of the Ford Foundation and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
