The United States’ foreign policy these days seems to have a pretty heavy focus on countries that are about as far away as geographically possible. Our relationships with China, India, and much of the Middle East tend to get more attention (especially in the press) than our relationships with our closest neighbors. Technology has made the world a much smaller place, but it’s still important to keep an eye on our own backyard. That’s what Inter-American Dialogue does. They’re a Washington, DC based non-profit that is “the leading U.S. center for policy analysis, exchange, and communication on issues in Western Hemisphere affairs.”
Inter-American Dialogue has a “membership of 100 distinguished citizens from throughout the Americas [that] includes political, business, academic, media, and other nongovernmental leaders.” These are seriously impressive people, and they are tasked with “generating new policy ideas and practical proposals for action, and getting these ideas and proposals to government and private decision makers.” You can learn more about the specifics by reading Inter-American Dialogue’s Program Agenda and looking through their collection of publications. And if you’re interested in seeing what the organization has accomplished over its first 30 years, I highly recommend looking at their 30th Anniversary Highlights. After that you may want to visit Inter-American Dialogue’s Jobs page. Right now they’re looking for a Latin America Advisor Reporter. The position requires fluency in Spanish.
