First LitTalk Worldwide: Latin America and the Caribbean In Focus: December 9th, 10:00 – 11:30 AM ET in Spanish, with simultaneous English interpretation (and vice versa).
Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) have not been on Washington’s foreign policy agenda for decades, but migration, organized crime, fundamentalisms, and a shared geopolitical, economic, and environmental space brought it to the forefront. What will relations between LAC and the United States look like from 2021 and how will this situation impact on human rights? What role should philanthropy play in this possible new relationship between the North and South of the continent?
Hosted by Ana María Enríquez, Executive Director at Human Rights Funders Network (HRFN) and moderated by Mariano Aguirre, Independent Analyst on international politics.
The outcome of the U.S. elections raises high expectations about the future of multilateralism, global democracy, environmental protection and human rights. The global problems and challenges are complex and will require political, economic, social and philanthropic commitment of all states and societies.
In this series, we’re bringing political thinkers from each region together to unpack American global agendas. We’re looking beyond borders and working to understand the distinct legacies and interconnections to answer one key question: what can we expect in the wake of the latest U.S. elections? These discussions will reveal the invisible impacts of our interconnected economies, lives, and realities. It’s time to debrief and focus on the lived experiences, understanding, resistance, and narrative of the global community.
