EXPECTATIONS FOR THE BIDEN ERA
This is a series of six one-hour webinars intended to explore different sides of the new scenario after Joe R. Biden’s arrival to the U.S. Presidency, from various regional perspectives, as well as a general –international– point of view. We aim to have a conversation aimed at a general public and not a purely academic dialogue. Given that the objective is that of sharing ideas, we will follow an agile format with short interventions and a substantive space for answering questions from the audience. The events will be held in Spanish.

Once the Biden Presidency has started, what can be expected of Washington’s approach to the region? Will it be some sort of return to a known routine, with the usual agendas, with the added issue of the pandemic’s consequences if at all, or will a new tone and substance be proposed? Will Latin America be a resource or a burden, a subject or an object for Biden’s United States?
