This subject introduces you to the politics, regional organisations and international role of the Americas, including North America, Latin America and the Caribbean. ‘The Americas’ explores case studies from the United States, Mexico, Cuba, Venezuela, Colombia, and Brazil. You will examine related themes such as the rise of the United States as a hemispheric and global power, the foreign policy of Canada, political and economic reform across Latin America, as well as diverse democratic, socialist and indigenous movements in these regions. Other topics discussed in the subject include the new inter-regionalism, driven by organisations such as Mercosur, the Organization of American States (OAS), the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC), and the Caribbean Community (Caricom). The subject also outlines emerging interactions with the Asia-Pacific, China and Europe. You will learn how to assess current foreign and security policies, looking forward to the hemisphere’s prospects and global influence in the 21st century.
