What is at stake in the midterm elections?
Is Paraguay's economy on the right track, and what would it take for the country to reach investment grade? Could flare-ups over social issues, such as strikes and concentrated land ownership, hamper progress? By Margaret Myers Food security will be one of the top global challenges in the coming decades.
According to recent estimates, agricultural production will need to increase percent by to meet future demand. How will new trade arrangements e. A number of Latin American nations are deeply troubled. The United States too faces formidable challenges, including polarized politics. Still, the United States remains a crucial economic partner for almost every country in the region, despite significant inroads made by China.
Her standing in the polls has dropped to unprecedented lows. The Inter-American Dialogue convened a panel of leading experts to analyze the institutional, political and economic implications of these events. President Barack Obama on March 9 signed an executive order declaring Venezuela a national security threat and imposing sanctions against seven officials in the Andean nation. What will the White House's action accomplish? To what extent is Venezuela a national security threat to the United States? What will Maduro do with decree powers?
A new report by Lisa Viscidi, Director of the Energy, Climate Change and Extractive Industries Program at the Inter-American Dialogue, examines the factors behind rising oil demand and the growing deficit in refining capacity in Latin America, as well as the geopolitical implications of increasing US oil product exports to the region. March 23, U. By John Maisto, Andrew F. Is Almagro the right person for the job? What are the biggest challenges he faces, and what are the first tasks he should tackle? To what extent is the OAS irrelevant, as its critics argue, and what should Almagro do to increase its influence?
March 17, What's Happening with the Nicaragua Canal? Will solar continue its growth momentum this year, and which countries will stand out? How are big swings in prices for other sources of power such as natural gas affecting the outlook for PV in the region? How are recent energy policy changes in Brazil, Mexico and elsewhere shaping the outlook for solar development in the medium to longer term? In a sign that such conflicts are continuing unabated, recent protests over an oil and gas project led to violent clashes and a political crisis for the Ollanta Humala government.
February 26, Lender of Last Resort? With billions more promised by the end of the decade, what does Chinese finance mean for the region? Are Chinese loans facilitating critical infrastructure development? What will mounting debt to China mean for Venezuela and Ecuador? February 24, Remittances to Latin America and the Caribbean in By Samantha Carter On February 24th the Dialogue held its annual event on Remittances to Latin America and the Caribbean, this time sharing estimates and relevant trends for remittances growth in February 24, Abortion and Reproductive Rights in Latin America: Implications for Democracy By Inter-American Dialogue and Center for Reproductive Rights Latin American countries have some of the most restrictive reproductive health laws and policies in the world, particularly with regard to abortion.
In part this stems from not recognizing reproductive freedom as a fundamental human right. However, imposing legal restrictions on abortion does not reduce the likelihood that women will seek this reproductive health service. Instead, harsh laws compel women to risk their lives and health by seeking out unsafe abortions. February 23, How Much Are the U. Will such sticking points derail the thaw between Washington and Havana? To what extent are the United States and Cuba willing to negotiate on issues such as Guantanamo and protection of human rights in Cuba? How is the multi-billion-dollar foreign claims settlement process likely to play out?
This closed-door session offered an opportunity for US government officials to present their priorities and goals for the Summit to be held in Panama in April, and to solicit reactions and viewpoints from civil society leaders. Department of Transportation announced last month that Mexican trucking companies will be able to apply to make long-haul trips in the United States. How will the change affect the countries' trade relationship? What will be the economic impact in the United States and Mexico? Have concerns raised in the United States about perceived safety hazards and pollution caused by Mexican trucks been adequately addressed?
Nisman, who had been investigating the bombing of a Jewish community center in Buenos Aires, was found dead one day before he was expected to testify before congress about his accusations against president Kirchner and others in the government. How has the government handled the situation, and how have the political class and Argentine society responded? With regional growth expected to be relatively low this year, will efforts at poverty reduction remain stalled? Can poverty be reduced in a low-growth environment? What policies or steps should governments take to address the issue?
Do Argentine authorities have sufficient independence to get to the bottom of what happened? Does the country's judiciary have enough strength and autonomy in major cases like that of the Jewish center bombing? Will the case have a chilling effect on future investigations? January 28, Latin America's Productivity Challenge: New approaches to Technical Education and Professional Training By Maria Oviedo A seminar held on January 28 convened key policymakers, academics, business professionals, and experts in workforce development to discuss the state of technical education and professional training in Latin America, review lessons from experience, and explore opportunities for reform in the region.
Meantime, the Andean country is suffering the world's highest rate of inflation and plunging prices for oil, its chief export, with parliamentary elections set for later this year. What does hold in store for Venezuela? To what extent is Maduro maintaining his grip on power?
What were the most important developments to come out of the meeting between the two presidents? What are the biggest challenges that lie ahead for U. The report concludes with timely suggestions for further research on Chinese energy engagement in the Americas. Because of the large role they play in Latin America, Chinese activities continue to command considerable attention, but there is no longer much surprise when China announces major new investments in Latin America, expansion of trade with different countries, high level visitors to the region, or regular participation in regional forums.
The presidents of Venezuela, Ecuador and Costa Rica are among the leaders attending. What is the state of China-Latin America relations? With China's slowing economy and Latin American economies facing lower prices for their commodity exports, to what extent will China and Latin American countries be able to help each other economically?
What does China stand to gain politically from closer engagement with Latin America and the Caribbean? Per capita income of the white population can be sixty percent higher to twice as high as the per capita income of the African descendant and indigenous populations. December 23, How Significant Will U.
In addition to normalizing relations after a half century and opening new embassies in Washington and Havana, the countries have agreed to allow U. How significant are the changes for banks and other financial services companies in the United States and elsewhere? How important of a market is Cuba for U. How much will improved commercial ties between Cuba and the United States depend upon the U. Congress' support for changing existing laws that restrict business with Cuba?
December 22, Cuba and the U. This was the first public event in Washington D. Michael Shifter, who was in Cuba at the time of the historic announcement, moderated the discussion. President Barack Obama on Wednesday announced plans to re-establish diplomatic ties with Cuba after more than 50 years, creating speculation that the move could lead to an easing of restrictions on economic and commercial ties affecting the country's energy sector.
Congress would require money transmitters to verify their customers' immigration status and collect a 7 percent penalty from customers who cannot prove that they are legally in the United States. Is this measure good policy? How would such a law affect companies that offer remittance services? How would Latin American and Caribbean countries that have large immigrant populations in the United States be affected. December 1, Citizen Insecurities and Democracy in the Americas, By Megan Cook The AmericasBarometer is one of the most comprehensive public opinion surveys available, covering 28 countries in the Western Hemisphere.
Elizabeth J. Mitchell A. President Barack Obama last week announced a plan to protect as many as five million undocumented immigrants from deportation. Obama's plan has drawn sharp criticism from Republican lawmakers who accuse him of overstepping his authority as president. How will Obama's action affect U. Will Obama's move spur Congress to pass its own immigration reform, or will lawmakers focus on fighting the president's actions?
What are the implications for businesses in the United States and Latin America? But Brazil also faces considerable public security challenges, reflected in a high homicide rate, the prevalence of organized crime, particularly drug trafficking, and widespread police corruption. What are the recent trends in violent crime in Brazil? What strategies are the national and local governments pursuing to deal with this problem?
What can be done to improve pacification and policing strategies? What are the opportunities for better state-federal cooperation? What has been the role of civil society organizations? Morgenstern, Carlos Saladrigas Cuba's government on Nov. The country's foreign commerce minister expressed hopes that the projects being pitched by the government, ranging from an auto plant to a hog farm, would help spur Cuba's flagging economy. How interested are international companies in investing in Cuba? What benefits and drawbacks will companies encounter in investing there?
What results have come from Cuba's four-year-old economic reform process? November 12, Beyond Venezuela's Simmering Crisis By Marielle Coutrix he breakdown of talks between the government and the opposition Democratic Unity MUD Alliance earlier this summer does not bode well and further suggests that reconciliation and growth will be a lengthy and complex process. Referring to the report Crisis Group published earlier this fall, both analysts argued that finding a sustainable solution to the Venezuelan crisis would require concerted political action by the international community.
Peter Hakim also joined the conversation to evaluate the prospects of a strengthened US-Brazilian bilateral relationship. What sort of central bank will Vanoli run? How will Argentina's long-brewing currency woes play out? In the lead-up to the meeting, experts weighed in on climate change policy in Latin America at a panel hosted by the Inter-American Dialogue in Washington, DC. The system, however, faces great challenges. In recent years, both the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights and the Inter-American Court of Human Rights have been the subject of vigorous debate, reflecting changes in the political landscape and increasing demands on the system.
The forum focused on possible reforms to make the system more effective in defending human rights and advancing democratic principles throughout the Americas. It will featured the main ideas for reform that emerged from a private gathering at the University of Notre Dame earlier this year of human rights lawyers, scholars, diplomats, and judges involved in the Inter-American human rights system. By Claudio X. To what extent would expanding preschool and daycare benefit Latin American countries, when even some industrialized countries like the United States do not offer those benefits?
Are such initiatives likely to be realized in the region? Are there drawbacks to such plans? By Marcos Espinal, Katherine Bliss, Amy Nunn Source: Latin America Advisor Amid the Ebola outbreak, countries in Latin America and the Caribbean have heightened public health protections, such as Jamaica, where the government created a "National Coordinating Team" to respond to the threat of the virus, and the United States, which despite declaring its health system is superior has had health care workers contract the disease.
How well are countries in the Americas prepared to fight the spread of a disease like Ebola? Are resources to protect public health in the region being allocated in the right way? What implications would an outbreak of a disease like Ebola have in areas such as immigration policy and security?
What more should aid agencies, governments, multilateral organizations and others be doing in the fight against Ebola? Because Brazil now has four time zones, the presidential election tally was released after 8 p. However, the results of the gubernatorial elections were released before 8 p. October 28, Brazil's Presidential Election: Interpreting the Results By Marielle Coutrix Brazil is the seventh-largest economy in the world and is increasingly a global player.
Just days after the vote, the Atlantic Council's Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center and the Inter-American Dialogue welcomed policy specialists to discuss what the results signal for Brazil's economy, Brazil's position on the global stage, and what to expect in and beyond. Source: Latin America Advisor For the second year in a row, people in Latin America are less likely to say they live in countries where women are treated with respect and dignity than people in any other region, according to a recent Gallup survey. A median of 35 percent of adults across 22 Latin American countries said women are treated with respect in their nations, about half as high as percentages in any other region, Gallup said, though the figure disguises wide differences between countries.
How are women faring in Latin America, and what are the most important issues facing women in the region? Where has progress been made and how has that been achieved? What more needs to be done to promote gender equality? October 24, Politics and Possibilities for Immigration Reform By Marielle Coutrix The session explored the following questions: First, in the likely absence of Congressional action, what decisions and initiatives can be expected from President Obama after the mid-term elections?
Second, in what ways has the recent surge in child migrants from Central America shifted the debate over immigration reform? Third, how can immigration policy be linked with US-sponsored regional security initiatives? And finally, how will immigration issues likely affect the next presidential campaign — and outcome? Yet even with all the problems that reduced oil prices create for his administration, President Nicolas Maduro is doubling down on his current policies.
Still, some businesses that rely on modern logistics systems say planned projects aren't enough to meet their needs. Where is the greatest demand for improved infrastructure in the region, and how well do current plans address those needs? Has money already committed on infrastructure projects been spent wisely? Does the region have adequate engineering talent and other human capital for needed projects?
Can a country spend too much on infrastructure? What can investors expect from another Morales administration? What do Sunday's legislative election results suggest about Morales' governing strength and maneuverability moving ahead? Will anticipated lower prices for natural gas, an important export commodity for Bolivia, undermine the recent momentum in the economy?
What economic priorities would you advise Morales to set for his next term? October 10, Evo's Journey: Discussion of the Bolivian Elections By Marielle Coutrix Riding a strong economy and facing a weak and fragmented opposition, Bolivian president Evo Morales seems poised to secure a third term.
Many attribute his commanding lead in the polls to a result of improvement in living standards. Critics point to authoritarian tendencies and an unfair electoral process. Will Bolivia be able to sustain its positive economic and social performance? To what extent does the Bolivia case fit with regional trends, in the Andean countries and more widely?
How does governance compare with that of its neighbors? From to , he headed the Latin American initiative at the Brookings Institution. October 1, Brasil, elecciones y clases medias By Peter Hakim Dialogue president emeritus Peter Hakim discusses the upcoming presidential election in Brazil and asserts the results will be decided by the country's middle class. September 30, A New Course for Brazil? El sur de Guatemala, el norte de Honduras y el oeste de El Salvador se han visto especialmente afectados. The report concludes with timely suggestions for further research on Chinese mining in the Americas.
September 19, Immigration Policy: What's Next? The recent upsurge in unaccompanied minors in the southern border has re-framed the political discussion on immigration reform. In light of this announcement, what comes next? To what extent and in what ways will the elections likely impact the prospects for changes in US immigration policy? How do local and national groups view the current moment and how are they responding? Among the challenges facing Gaviria are increasing the rate of investment, reducing unemployment, and accelerating economic growth. Some 1, past and present government officials, lawmakers, diplomats, academics, economists, journalists, policymakers, and other participants gathered in Washington, DC, on September 3 and 4 to discuss the most pressing challenges and opportunities in the Western Hemisphere.
September 11, Mexico energy reform gives Colombia the jitters By Arron Daugherty and Lisa Viscidi Source: Business News Americas In the first of a two-part series, Inter-American Dialogue's energy, climate change and extractive industries program director Lisa Viscidi talks to BNamericas about how the Colombian government is looking to increase oil reserves and maintain competitiveness as Mexico opens its hydrocarbons market.
The emphasis on absolute prohibition and strict law enforcement is giving way to strategies that allow for the decriminalization or legalization of some drugs, and sharply reduced penalties for many of those involved in the production and sale of drugs. The OAS produced a landmark report on hemispheric drug policies last year, which sets out the data and analysis that make clear the risks of sticking with current approaches. It also carefully lays out the alternatives, which present their own risks and benefits. Since its publication, the report has substantially enriched policy discussions and debates about drugs and given new credibility to those who have been arguing for changes in policy.
It has also reinforced Latin American leadership on drug problems and related issues. Aunque Brasil tiene un buen acceso al financiamiento internacional, la cantidad de capital necesario para sus grandes proyectos de infraestructura sigue siendo enorme. Campos' death sent shockwaves through the country's political world and rattled financial markets just two months ahead of Brazil's October presidential election.
What effects will Campos' sudden death have on the race, including any potential runoff? Against the backdrop of acute fiscal pressures, internal divisions within the government are intensifying and are posing significant strains. The opposition is also split and has shown few signs of moving towards a more coherent political strategy.
Tens of thousands of children, mainly from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, have been apprehended at the U. This increase is also seen among adults, though to a lesser degree. As the United States, Mexico, and Central American countries struggle to address this crisis, debates have raged surrounding the humanitarian, legal, and political implications of any possible solution to this complex and troubling issue.
This memo aims to inform the current debate by integrating data on issues triggering this outflow while also introducing the perspectives of the people and communities they affect. Specifically, it draws on data from municipalities to analyze migrant hometowns in relation to human development,violence, and education. In addition, it presents the results of a nationwide survey in El Salvador and a survey of Central American migrants residing in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.
President Emeritus of the Dialogue Peter Hakim assesses the countries' creation of the new international development bank and a reserve arrangement to deal with financial crises in China Policy Review. How successful have Latin America and the Caribbean been in reaching the goals, and where have they fallen short? With governments now debating a series of sustainable development goals for the post agenda, what should be included? How useful are these kind of broad targets as measurements of progress in the region?
But more controversially, the newly approved laws will roll back pollution standards and fast-track environmental licensing for new energy and mining projects. By Michael Shifter Source: Foreign Policy Vladimir Putin's six-day Latin American tour this past week reveals that, in the face of tougher economic sanctions by the United States and perhaps the European Union over the Ukraine crisis, the Russian president will not be quiescent.
Anticipating an intensifying showdown on Ukraine, Putin took advantage of a meeting of the BRICS countries in Brazil to pursue a diplomatic initiative and call on political support in Cuba, Nicaragua, Argentina, and Brazil. Despite the broad agreement on the need to tackle the challenge, however, a fierce political debate in the United States has ensued. While a variety of proposals have been put forward to deal with the tragic and urgent situation, most of these are little more than stop-gap measures that seek to provide humane treatment to the children and either hasten or slow deportations of the minors.
July 16, Young Migrants and US Policy By Brigid Carmichael The discussion examined the evolving situation of these young migrants and how the US government and the governments of Central America are defining and responding to the challenges they present. July 14, To keep kids from our borders, fix things farther south By Peter Hakim Source: Reuters As it confronts the recent influx of child migrants from Central America, the United States must not only reform its domestic immigration policy, but also reassess its drug, trade, and foreign-aid policies toward the region, writes Dialogue President Emeritus Peter Hakim.
And that applies not only to advancing the peace process but also to achieving broader social harmony. For the energy sector, Santos must build support from business and social movements for policies that promote investment while ensuring the greatest overall benefits for the country.
