Abstract

Latin America’s security issues have become an important topic in international relations and Latin American studies. The region has undergone significant change during the last 20 years, and its experience informs scholarly debates about war, regional peace, arms races, terrorism, peacekeeping operations, and even nuclear arms potential. There are more undergraduate and graduate students studying Latin America’s security issues than ever before. Bolstering this trend is the greater relevance of regional security studies generally since the end of the Cold War due to the increased autonomy of the different regions of the world and the research focus on regionalism and the potential for regional security governance.
