Politics in Latin America

Electoral results in Latin America over the past four years have led many observers of the regional/political scene to discern a left-wing surge in the hemisphere, reminiscent of the so-called “Pink Tide” that swept the area some 20 years ago. But how much do these politicians actually have in common? What implication does their ascendency have for the region?

The Great Decisions Discussion Group is a weekly, 8-part series focusing on current international issues faced by the United States. Each week the discussion group will watch a video on an issue and then engage in stimulating conversation.

Our facilitator will be educator and long-time Great Discussions leader Klaus-Peter Voss. His experience with world affairs comes from a career spanning over 30 years in education and also from traveling extensively throughout Europe, Africa, Australia, the United States and Canada.
