The Inter American Trends is a public policy research organization —a think tank— dedicated to the principles of democracy, social and political ideas, security threats, and energy market in the region. Its scholars and analysts conduct independent, nonpartisan research on a wide range of specific issues.


We are a nonpartisan policy research organization committed to research and analysis that promotes Latinamerican security, prosperity, and freedom in a sustainable manner.

Challenges conventional thinking and helps manage strategic transitions to the future through interdisciplinary studies in terrorism, international relations, economics, energy, and politics.

With office in Washington seeks to guide public policy makers and global leaders in government and business through publications, and policy briefings and recommendations.

Does it matters?

  • It matters to the policymaker, who lacks the time to give serious reflection to long-term trends that will shape America's choices abroad.
  • It matters to the media, who miss the expertise to make sense of complex developments in foreign lands.
  • It matters to the educator, who needs informed preparation to teach the next generation.
  • It matters to the students, who represent the next generation of American leadership.
  • It matters to the public, whose children will be sent off to war and whose taxes will pay the bills.
