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.
