About the Americas Program
With more than 35 years of experience in Latin American news and analysis, the Americas Program of the Center for International Policy is a leading source of information for activists, academics and citizens concerned about US foreign policy in Latin America, human rights and movements for social justice within the hemisphere.
From our office in Mexico City, the Americas Program publishes a steady flow of original research and materials that report and analyze events throughout the hemisphere. The Program also acts as a cyber-hub to link up movements in our eight areas: migration, food sovereignty, drug war, democracy and society, land and territory, social movements, human rights and gender equality. We take a facts-based look at U.S. foreign policy by examining the on-the-ground impact in human rights, militarization and violence, democracy, gender equality and economic justice.
Our network of writers in countries throughout the region also traces the achievements, setbacks and challenges of grassroots movements, as the essential component of real social change. In our writings, public speaking, media interviews and multimedia production, we seek to increase North-South dialogue, break down stereotypes and help inform and broaden networks.
