Wilson Center Reports on the Americas No. 8: Argentina-United States Bilateral Relations: An Historical Perspective and Future Challenges
On March 5, 2003, the Latin American Program and the Cold War International History Project held a conference on "Argentina-United States Bilateral Relations: An Historical Perspective and Future Challenges." The first panel dealt with the current Argentina-US bilateral relations and the future challenges. The panelists discussed the US-Argentina tight alliance during the Carlos Menem Administration, its effects on the country's position in international affairs, and possible internal and foreign policies to increase Argentina's relevance in the international arena. The second panel evaluated a new perspective on Argentina-US bilateral relations, given the declassification of 4677 documents about the dirty war period that were kept in the US Embassy in Buenos Aires. This book contains an edited version of the panelists presentations.
