Central America

The Latin American Program has long pursued an active agenda of scholarly research and public discussions on Central American politics, society, and foreign affairs. Over the past several years we have held numerous conferences, seminars, and round-tables, bringing together U.S. and Central American scholars and policymakers to engage in research and debate on issues of critical importance. The Latin America Program emphasizes the importance of drawing attention to developments in Central America as they unfold, and its work to date on Central America has focused on: 1) the effects of changing economic factors on citizens; 2) changing democratic conditions in El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, and Honduras; and 3) citizen security. Latin America Program events and publications on Central America incorporate various perspectives and can be found below.
