Lecture: "US Foreign Policy in Latin America in the Trump Era"

-

Location: Hesburgh Center C103

Michael Shifter

Michael Shifter, President of the Inter-American Dialogue, will give a talk on U.S.-Latin American relations under Donald Trump.

Reception to follow.

In early February Secretary of State Rex Tillerson embarked on a wide-ranging Latin American trip, visiting Mexico, Argentina, Peru, Colombia, and Jamaica. The tour was the Trump administration’s most significant Latin American foray to date. The reaction was mixed. Some praised his efforts to rally support for sanctions against Venezuela in response to the political and economic crisis there and noted his conciliatory tone as a much-needed contrast to President Trump’s frequently aggressive rhetoric.  Others, however, argued that his trip was of little significance and criticized his patronizing tone in warning against increasing Chinese influence in the region. In either case, it is difficult to deny that Rex Tillerson’s Latin America first real engagement with the region — marked by a surprising revival of the long obsolete and often-criticized Monroe Doctrine — came up against a harsh reality of sharply diminished US influence in the Americas.…

Work in Progress: "Eroding Regimes: What, Where, and When?"

-

Michael Coppedge

Michael Coppedge 
Professor of Political Science at Notre Dame
Faculty Fellow of the Kellogg Institute for International Studies

The political world lately seems to be filled with unexpected erosions of democracy. What is the most useful way to describe these phenomena? Do they all belong to a common syndrome? Certainly there are different degrees of erosion, but are there also different types? How common are such erosions in the world today? Is this a new phenomenon, or are there close parallels with events in the past? If we detect early warning signs of erosion, how concerned should we be that it will continue and culminate in the breakdown of democracy? This paper argues that there are two distinct erosion paths. First, there is a classic path of growing repression of speech, media, assembly, and civil liberties, combined with deteriorating political discourse. The second path involves the concentration of power in the executive at the expense of the courts and the legislature, similar to what Guillermo O’Donnell called “delegative democracy,” which entails the erosion of horizontal accountability. Venezuela emerges as the most extreme and most fully articulated instance of erosion along this second path.…
