The program was established in 2016 with the clear forward-looking mission to elevate the discussion on the hemisphere to a strategic level.
The program informs and produces insightful analysis and recommendations for partners in the United States and the region.
The Americas Program focuses on three pillars:
- The effect of corruption, impunity, and abuse of power on the defense and security sector priorities of the region and the United States.
- The erosion of democratic practices and institutions and its impact on regional security, governance, and on vulnerable populations like women, youth, indigenous populations, and persons with disabilities.
- The consequences of forced displacement and involuntary migration caused by violence, social unrest, and conflict.
