About

Washington debates about Latin America are all too often plagued by U.S.-centric perspectives and adherence to conventional wisdoms that are disconnected from the complex realities of the region.  The AULA Blog aspires to stimulate fresh thinking and creative debate about Latin American public affairs and U.S.-Latin American relations by providing a space for concise, timely and cutting-edge analyses of unfolding developments and long term trends.

The blog features contributions from CLALS Faculty, Fellows and Staff, and is directed by CLALS Senior Research Fellow Fulton Armstrong.  We offer critical insight, innovative thinking and timely, provocative analysis of issues relating to hemispheric affairs.  Our goal is to be “non-gratuitously provocative” both to open up debate in the U.S. and to provide non-Washington-based readers with a glimpse into how critical eyes in our nation’s capital assess the forces that drive U.S. policy.  We seek to take full advantage of the opportunities that new technologies afford for the rapid dissemination of ideas, and we encourage readers to re-post our writings widely.
