US-Caribbean Relations in Biden Administration Year 1
Over the past decade, US engagement with the Caribbeanhas vacillated between targeted strategies (trade, energy,and environment) and indifference. In this webinar, panelists will examine US policy towards the Caribbean during the first year of the Biden Administration, with a focus on notable issues in need of attention and the opportunity to discuss these issues when the US hosts the Summit of the Americas in June 2022. Panelists will analyze the continuing effects of the global pandemic, opportunities and challenges of the southern Caribbean’s emergence as a key oil producer, the continuing need for cooperation on climate change, effects of anti-money laundering and de-risking policies, the fragility of the Caribbean’s democratic norms, and a new form of global super-power rivalry in the region.
