US-Latin American Policy: Is the Current Approach Working?
In this edition of Wilson Center NOW, we are joined by Benjamin Gedan, Acting Director of the Wilson Center's Latin American Program and the Director of its Argentina Project. He discusses current U.S. policy approaches to Latin America and what shifts have occurred under the Biden administration. Gedan also highlights how global competition with China has affected U.S. political and economic focus on the region.
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 policy forum, the Program serves as a trusted source of analysis and a vital point of contact between the worlds of scholarship and action.
