Event Details

Join us on Wednesday, February 22 at 6 pm at the Gunnison Library or virtually for a foreign policy discussion about Politics in Latin America.

About the topic:

Electoral results in Latin America over the past four years have led many observers of the regional/political scene to discern a left-wing surge in the hemisphere, reminiscent of the so-called “Pink Tide” that swept the area some 20 years ago. But how much do these politicians actually have in common? What implication does their ascendency have for the region? (by Jorge Castañeda. Full article PDF here)

. . .

This part is part of an eight-week discussion series called Great Decisions hosted by the Gunnison Library, in conjunction with the Foreign Policy Association. Great Decisions is the largest discussion program on world affairs in the United States.

Participants will read a short article each week to familiarize themselves with the topic. Then at the meeting, we will watch a short documentary video clip and engage in a moderated discussion.

A PDF of the reading materials (which are produced by the Foreign Policy Association) are available by clicking this link or you can visit the library for hard copies.

The next discussions will focus on the following topics:

March 1: Global Famine

March 8: Iran at the Crossroads

March 15: Climate Mitigation
