Summary

Jorge I. Dominguez has brought together experts from Latin America, the Caribbean and the US to explore transnational aspects of crime, migration, trade, security, democracy, and international financial institutions in the Americas. They consider the effect of drug trafficking on government, the economy, and the rule of law, at both national and hemispheric levels. They look at the policy implications of migration and immigration trends, as well as trends in international trade. Assessing how to promote peace and democracy in the region, several essays examine regional issues and institutions. Others analyze the role of international financial institutions such as the IMF and the World Bank in promoting economic reforms. Commissioned by the Inter-American Dialogue, this collection contributes to the debate on the future direction of inter-American relations.
