The Latin American Program at 40

A Conference on Latin America’s Domestic and International Challenges

The Wilson Center’s Latin American Program celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2017. On this occasion, we seek to build on past strengths and look ahead to the most critical challenges and opportunities for Latin America today and the role of the Wilson Center in shaping the debates and agendas around them.

It is in that spirit that we have identified anti-corruption, on the one hand, and the changing patterns of regional integration as critical challenges for the hemisphere today and central priorities for our future work.
