While the United States, Canada and Mexico are in the midst of renegotiating NAFTA, the debate on immigration continues and talk of tariffs makes headlines. Meanwhile, serious economic and security issues, growing violence, organized crime and political corruption abound from Mexico through Central America, the Caribbean and across South America. What does this all mean for the future of U.S. and Latin American relations?  Did President Trump’s decision to not attend the recent Summit of the Americas so he could deal with the Syrian crisis adversely affect the status of our relations with our neighbors to the south, or did most leaders attending take his absence in stride?  

Christopher Sabatini is keenly aware of what’s at stake for the United States, Central and South America.  As the founder and executive director of Global Americans, editor of, and lecturer on international and public policy at Columbia University, Sabatini illuminates the humanitarian and political implications, along with how China and Russia can benefit in a challenging diplomatic climate during The U.S. and Latin America: A Path Forward.  

Marc Grossman joins Sabatini for the eye-opening discussion. Grossman is currently the vice chairman of The Cohen Group—a global business consulting firm. Before his tenure with The Cohen Group, Grossman had a distinguished career in foreign service, including stints as U.S. ambassador to Turkey, assistant secretary of state for European Affairs, and U.S. special representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan. As undersecretary of state for political affairs, he managed U.S. policies in the Balkans and Colombia.
