A new UNHCR report, “Women on the Run,” provides first-hand accounts of women from the Northern Triangle region (El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras) who are seeking asylum in the US as part of a looming refugee crisis. Their struggles are part of a larger story effecting hundreds of thousands more. The need for a regional response to the growing problem provides the focus for this edition of REWIND.

Latin American Program

The Wilson Center’s prestigious Latin American Program provides non-partisan expertise to a broad community of decision makers in the United States and Latin America on critical policy issues facing the Hemisphere. The Program provides insightful and actionable research for policymakers, private sector leaders, journalists, and public intellectuals in the United States and Latin America. To bridge the gap between scholarship and policy action, it fosters new inquiry, sponsors high-level public and private meetings among multiple stakeholders, and explores policy options to improve outcomes for citizens throughout the Americas. Drawing on the Wilson Center’s strength as the nation’s key non-partisan forum, the Program serves as a trusted source of analysis and a vital point of contact between the worlds of scholarship and action.  Read more
