US Electoral Intervention in the Americas

Saturday, 08 April 2006 19:03

Mark Weisbrot traveled to Massachusetts to speak at, and participate in, a conference, In the Name of Democracy: US Electoral Intervention in the Americas. The conference brought together a broad range of academics and NGOs, including Jennifer McCoy of the Carter Center, Daniel Wilkerson of Human Rights Watch, Gilbert Joseph, Director of Latin American and Iberian Studies at Yale; Greg Grandin from New York University; Atilio Boron of CLASCO and the University of Buenos Aires; author Naomi Klein, and representatives of the National Endowment for Democracy and the International Republican Institute.

There were a number of lively and informative discussions of the role and impact of U.S.-funded “democracy promotion” efforts in the Americas.

Mark’s panel included Marta Lagos, director of Latinobarómetro; and Anìbal Pérez-Liñan, Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Pittsburgh. Over 100 people attended the conference.
