Latin America

Chaired by CSPC Trustees Mel Martinez and Francis Rooney, this project examines U.S. policy towards Latin America and the opportunities for increased attention toward the region and improved relations with regional partners.  With a focus on economic engagement, educational exchanges, and civil institutions, this program will look at how the successes of nations like Colombia, Mexico, and Panama can be applied to U.S. policy toward the region.  Additionally, this project will examine the dynamics of the U.S. relationship with Brazil and the challenges and opportunities of the increased regional and international profile of Brazil.
