Hemisphere in Transition
Over the past year, the COVID-19 pandemic brought forth socio-economic disruptions of historic proportions globally with countries across the Americas among the hardest hit. At the same time, the year 2020 was a time of political changes with general or parliamentary elections in Peru, Guyana, Suriname, Bolivia, Chile, Venezuela and, in particular, the United States. To better assess the changes faced across the region with a view to the solutions for the future, the Institute of the Americas has launched the Hemisphere in Transition webinar series undertaken in partnership with the University of California Television (UC-TV). The first program in our series was the February 11th presentation entitled “China Stakes its Claim in Latin American Energy: What it Means for the Region, the U.S. and Beijing” highlighted key findings of a recently published report by the Institute.
Our next webinar in the series will be focused on U.S.-Cuba Bilateral Relations Under the Biden Administration and is scheduled on Thursday, March 25th at 10am-11:30am PST. Other forthcoming webinars planned for the year will highlight the following key themes: Promoting Security and Prosperity in Central America, COVID-19 and Latin America’s Educational Digital Divide; and Renewing U.S. hemispheric Engagement in our Changing World.
