Ahead of President Obama’s trip to the 2015 Summit of the Americas in Panama, Wilson Center experts will be available for analysis and commentary on U.S. policy in the Americas – in English, Spanish, Portuguese, and French. What is the significance of Cuba’s participation in the Summit for the first time? Will the recent deterioration in U.S.-Venezuelan relations overshadow other substantive issues on the Summit agenda? Wilson Center experts answer questions from the media.
