Heine Argues for Rebuilding of Latin American Regionalism

Ambassador Jorge Heine, Research Professor at the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University, published a La Tercera op-ed on the health and economic crisis facing Latin America and what he thinks is a path forward for the region.  

In the article, titled “Nuevo gobierno y crisis latinoamericana” (New government and Latin American crisis), Heine makes the case that a key foreign policy challenge for the incoming government of President-elect Gabriel Boric in Chile is to rebuild Latin American regionalism. This is especially urgent given the region’s deep crisis, the worst in 120 years, according to the UN’s ECLAC.

The full op-ed can be read on La Tercera‘s website.
