    Is Mexico really in a state of conflict?

    12 May 2017.  During our work monitoring the world’s armed conflicts, we look at a number of criteria to discern whether a country is in conflict, rather than suffering from high levels of violent criminality. A conflict’s duration and tempo, as well as the threat it poses to the state, are key factors, explains Anastasia Voronkova.

    US Latin America policy under Trump

    23 February 2017. 

    Trump's Latin America policy, so far generally subdued, may become more active. The administration has sharply antagonised Mexico with harsh immigration and trade policies. Trump also appears inclined to take strong positions on Cuba and Venezuela, and his tilt against trade agreements could present strategic opportunities for China in the region.

    Colombia: what comes next?

    08 February 2017. 

    The revised peace agreement in Colombia, though still controversial, is salutary. But to implement the agreement effectively, the government will have to follow through on its reintegration obligations to former FARC members and re-establish a presence in rural areas that brings security and stability. This will be an arduous process.

    12 January 2017.  Comments made by Donald Trump during his election campaign suggest that US support for global development will be at risk during his presidency. But the political establishment’s faith in development offers some hope for the years ahead, Antônio Sampaio says.
