The Decline of U.S. Influence? Americas Quarterly on Foreign Policy in the Americas

Americas Society / Council of the Americas

March 18, 2015


Has U.S. influence declined in Latin America? Will Latin American governments pursuing their own diplomatic paths create regional harmony, or more conflict over time? The Winter 2015 Americas Quarterly examines these questions, and a panel of authors from the issue will discuss what the real or perceived decline of U.S. hegemony means for the hemisphere, focusing on regional security, the blind spots in U.S.-Latin America policymaking, and the emergence of new political players in the region.


  • Russell Crandall, Professor of American Foreign Policy and International Politics, Davidson College
  • Guy Edwards, Research Fellow, Institute for Environment & Society, Brown University; Co-Director, Climate and Development Lab
  • Diana Villiers Negroponte, Public Policy Scholar, Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars
  • Alana Tummino, Senior Editor, Americas Quarterly; Director of Policy, Americas Society/Council of the Americas (Moderator)
