Abstract:

The report that follows summarizes findings and submits recommendations on U.S. approach to Latin America. The United States should change its basic approach to Latin America and the Caribbean. Dramatic transformations within Latin America and the Caribbean, major developments in the wider international arena, and significant changes in the terms on which this hemisphere relates to the rest of the world, all have undermined the assumptions which governed U.S. policy in the Americas from the Monroe Doctrine through the Good Neighbor policy to the Alliance for Progress and its successor, the Mature Partnership. We strongly believe that the policies which the United States has inherited from the past -- including many of their most basic assumptions and goals -- are inappropriate and irrelevant to the changed realities of the present and the trends of the future.
