POLI 489 - US-Latin American Relations (3 credits)


(Prereq: POLI 101  or permission of the instructor) This course provides a regional overview of International Relations by focusing on the Western Hemisphere. The primary focus will be on U.S.-Latin American relations, given the dominant role the United States has played in the region, since the early 1800s. The course looks at key historical periods and the theoretical underpinnings of U.S. policies directed toward the nations of the Americas. It also discusses the foreign policies of Latin American states with the United States and each other. The course further explores the role of inter-governmental organizations, such as the Organization of American States (OAS) and its influence in promoting key issues such as hemispheric cooperation on counter-drugs and security issues, as well as promoting democratization and trade.
