Alvarez, Carlos. La Argentina de Kirchner y el Brasil de Lula. Buenos Aires, Argentina, 2003

Jul 07, 2011
Brasil, Chile y Argentina enfrentan un momento histórico excepcional porque, aun cuando las condiciones internacionales no son fáciles, gobiernan hombres con una fuerte vocación de cambio y un compromiso con la integración regional. Sobre todo, porque tanto el presidente Lula como el Presidente Lagos y el Presidente Kirchner comparten una visión sobre nuestros dilemas y desafíos estratégicos. Esto significa que se pueden trascender los marcos de los acuerdos sobredeterminados por lo comercial, y avanzar en otras áreas que contengan la posibilidad de ir convergiendo en un parámentro común. Este libro, que trata especialmente los casos de Argentina y Brasil, es el primer intento en ese sentido, pues estamos convencidos de que la búsqueda de un paradigma distinto y superador del neoliberalismo no es tarea de un solo país, sino del conjunto de la región. Desde esta perspectiva, debemos empezar a amalgamar parte de las producciones académicas, intelectuales o técnicas que nos ayudan a pensarnos como un ´´nosotros´´. No como la sumatoria de países, sino como un espacio común, en el que estamos ´´condenados´´ a la integración si pretendemos ser protagonistas, y sujetos activos en la actual fase global del capitalismo. more

Global Drug Trafficking: Africa's Expanding Role

Jul 07, 2011
Africa's role in the drug trafficking industry is a strong testament to the interplay of supply and demand market expansion, to the hybridization of transnational organized crime syndicates, as well as to the need for a paradigm shift in domestic, regional and international approaches to drug trafficking interdiction. On May 28, 2009, the Africa Program of the Woodrow Wilson Center convened a conference to assess the situation of international drug trafficking and the increasingly important role that Africa plays. more
