A Lecture by Michael Shifter: "Shift in U.S.-Cuba Policy: Implications for Hemispheric Relations."
RSVP required for lecture and luncheon.
Please join us for a lecture by Michael Shifter, President of the Inter-American Dialogue, the premier think-tank on Western Hemisphere affairs in Washington, D.C.
The announcement, last December 17th, that the United States would move towards normalization of its diplomatic relations with Cuba, generated questions about the move's potential impact. Some observers have interpreted the move as a harbinger of better times for ordinary Cubans, while others have expressed doubts about its potential for improving human rights and political freedoms. All agree, however, that the shift in policy is historic, and that it is bound to have profound implications for hemispheric relations. As a long-time observer of inter-American affairs, Michael Shifter is in a privileged position to assess those implications, and the likely scenarios in which they might unfold.
Michael Shifter is president of the Inter-American Dialogue, a Washington-based forum on Western Hemisphere affairs. Since 1993, Mr. Shifter has been adjunct professor at Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service, where he teaches Latin American politics. Mr. Shifter writes and talks widely on U.S.-Latin American relations and hemispheric affairs. His recent articles have appeared in major U.S. and Latin American publications such as The New York Times, Foreign Affairs, Foreign Policy, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, Journal of Democracy, Harvard International Review, Clarin, O Estado de S. Paulo, and Cambio, and he is co-editor, along with Jorge Domínguez, of Constructing Democratic Governance in Latin America, published by Johns Hopkins University Press. He is also a contributing editor to Current History. Since 1996, he has frequently testified before Congress about U.S. policy towards Latin America. Prior to joining the Inter-American Dialogue, Mr. Shifter directed the Latin American and Caribbean program at the National Endowment for Democracy and, before that, the Ford Foundation's governance and human rights program in the Andean region and Southern Cone where he was based in Lima, Peru, and subsequently, in Santiago, Chile.
