ON-Lion Letter
Important changes are reshaping the political landscape across Latin America.  While the last decade has been dominated by great polarization and populist authoritarianism, recent elections in Argentina and Peru signal important developments in the region.  Regimes built on democratic values appear to be replacing populist governments.  

Will this new wave of democratic governance bring real change to the Latin America?  Should the U.S. increase its engagement in the region to further a shared interest in democratic governance and social development?

On July 7, the Center for Latin American Studies at the Hudson Institute in Washington, D.C., will host "Political Changes in Latin America:  An Opportunity for U.S. Engagement?" -- a discussion with Robert Funk, a professor of political science at the University of Chile, and Hector Schamis, an adjunct professor at Georgetown University, on the prospects for broader democratic change in Latin America.  Amb. Jaime Daremblum, who directs the center, will deliver introductory remarks.

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee supports the conference.
