U.S Foreign Policy for South America 2003 to 2015

February 5 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

During her stay at the Center for Latin American Studies in Georgetown University as a visiting researcher, Livia Peres Milani worked on her dissertation, which looks at U.S. Foreign Policy for South America during the period marked by the “pink tide” (2003-2015). Her study’s objective is to understand how the U.S. as a superpower acted in the region during a moment when there was resistance to its dominance. Peres Milani argues that despite the common perception of U.S. neglect towards South America, the U.S. remained influential during this period, especially as regards security issues. Continuing U.S. influence, she argues, led countries in the region to adopt anti-terrorism legislation and influenced their drug policies. Even though the Middle East was more of a priority for the U.S., its diplomatic and military bureaucracy kept working to maintain U.S. hegemony in the South American sub-region.

Livia Milani is a PhD candidate in International Relations at the University of Campinas (UNICAMP) and holds a MA and BA in International Relations from São Paulo State University (UNESP) where she is also a lecturer. Livia’s research aims to analyze U.S. foreign policy in South America, with specific focus on Brazil and Argentina.

Lunch will be provided. If you have any dietary restrictions or require any other special accommodation, please email clas@georgetown.edu.
