VIDEOThe Dialogue’s Andean Program seeks to address the most pressing issues facing Colombia, Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador, and Peru, including democratic governance, drug trafficking, energy, and international relations. The program regularly hosts meetings that brings together some of the Western Hemisphere’s most influential and recognized individuals to discuss salient topics facing the region. It also coordinates the annual meeting of the Latin America Working Group, formerly known as the Andean Working Group. Comprised of approximately thirty of the region’s leading analysts and practitioners, the Working Group discusses Latin America’s democratic, economic, social, and political development as well as the role of regional institutions and the influence of hemispheric actors, such as Brazil.
