Tuesday Seminar Series: U.S. Policy toward Latin America under the Trump Administration

With the start of any U.S. administration there tends to be some uncertainty about possible changes in U.S. policy towards Latin America. In the case of the current administration, especially following a campaign in which Mexico was the proxy for the two issues — immigration and trade — that propelled Trump’s candidacy, such uncertainty, and apprehension, has been especially pronounced. Exactly two months into the Trump administration, is it possible to discern changes in policy approaches towards the region? How significant are such changes and what is their impact in Latin America? Beyond Mexico, to what extent are there signs of policy shifts towards Central America, Cuba, Venezuela, Colombia, along with other countries? Is there a real risk of renewed hostilities in U.S.-Latin American relations?
