As Brazil plays an ever-expanding role in regional and world politics, PAULO SOTERO MARQUES, director of the Brazil Institute of the Woodrow Wilson Center, will discuss the future of Brazil in world affairs and this fall’s presidential race. Sotero served as the Washington correspondent for Estado de S. Paulo, a leading Brazilian daily newspaper. He has also been a regular commentator and analyst for BBC radio’s Portuguese-language service and Radio France Internationale. In 2009, Sotero joined the adjunct faculty of George Washington University’s Elliott School of International Affairs.

Latin America: In the last decade, we have witnessed a dramatic rise of leftist governments in Latin America. At the same time, there has also been a substantive decline in U.S. influence in the region, perhaps best exemplified by the failed launch of the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA). And long-standing issues such as drug control and immigration remain at the forefront of U.S.-Latin American policy concerns. For these reasons, in the fall of 2008, ten years after Chavez' landmark election in 1998, the Miller Center at the University of Virginia launched a special ongoing Forum series focused on Latin America.
