The CSIS Americas Program anchors the center’s work on this region with the objective to elevate the discussion to the strategic level. CSIS’s programming primarily focuses on the effect of impunity and abuse of power on defense and security sector priorities, the impact that the erosion of democratic practices and institutions has on vulnerable populations, and the consequences of forced displacement and involuntary migration.
The Americas Program collaborates closely with other CSIS Programs, including the Project on Prosperity and Development, the Simon Chair in Political Economy, the Scholl Chair in International Business, the International Security Program, the Transnational Threats Program, and the Global Health Policy Center.
