2022: A Turbulent Year for Latin America
2022 was a challenging year for Latin America. As the region suffered from the lingering impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, its politics were unsettled and widespread frustration raised the prospect of a prolonged period of social unrest, dampening investment. As Latin America prepares to navigate another challenging year, amid slowing global growth and increasingly costly financing, the Wilson Center’s Latin American Program, Brazil Institute and Argentina Project remain committed to providing actionable ideas for policymakers, private sector leaders and civil society actors across the region.
Latin America Program
The Wilson Center’s prestigious Latin America Program provides non-partisan expertise to a broad community of decision makers in the United States and Latin America on critical policy issues facing the Hemisphere. The Program provides insightful and actionable research for policymakers, private sector leaders, journalists, and public intellectuals in the United States and Latin America. To bridge the gap between scholarship and policy action, it fosters new inquiry, sponsors high-level public and private meetings among multiple stakeholders, and explores policy options to improve outcomes for citizens throughout the Americas. Drawing on the Wilson Center’s strength as the nation’s key non-partisan policy forum, the Program serves as a trusted source of analysis and a vital point of contact between the worlds of scholarship and action.
