Over the years, members of Washington's policy, business, NGO and media communities have participated in the Inter-American Dialogue's public forums, conferences, and other policy exchanges. Dialogue Associates have a demonstrated interest in Latin America and the Caribbean and a deep concern about U.S. policy in the region. They are committed to improving the quality of debate and decision making in hemispheric relations, and to strengthening communication and cooperation among the nations of the Americas.
The Dialogue organizes major conferences ranging across an array of critical issues—U.S.-Latin American trade and investment links, energy integration, globalization and poverty, education reform, race discrimination in Latin America, women and political power, remittances and migration, the changing politics and economics of Cuba, Colombia's continuing trials, and ongoing threats to press freedom in the Americas.
Recent Dialogue events have featured presidents Álvaro Uribe, Leonel Fernández, and former presidents Alejandro Toledo and Fernando Henrique Cardoso; more than a dozen ministers of foreign affairs, finance, and trade; U.S. and Latin American congressional leaders; Secretary General of the Organization of American States José Miguel Insulza; Assistant Secretary of State Tom Shannon; and current and former presidents of the Inter-American Development Bank, Luis Alberto Moreno and Enrique Iglesias. The Dialogue has recently hosted presidential candidates from the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Mexico, and Costa Rica, and held forums on the elections in Brazil and Venezuela.
