The Institute of the Americas is a non-profit policy center at University of California San Diego that hosts professional workshops and conferences on critical issues in the Americas
Background: Over the past year, the COVID-19 pandemic brought forth socio-economic disruptions of historic proportions globally with countries across the Americas among the hardest hit. At the same time, the year 2020 was a time of political changes with general or parliamentary elections in Peru, Guyana, Suriname, Bolivia, Chile, Venezuela and, in particular, the United States. To better assess the changes faced across the region with a view to the solutions for the future, the Institute of the Americas has launched the Hemisphere in Transition webinar series undertaken in partnership with the University of California Television (UC-TV). The first program in our series was the February 11th presentation entitled “China Stakes its Claim in Latin American Energy: What it Means for the Region, the U.S. and Beijing” highlighted key findings of a recently published report by the Institute.
