About this Study Group
The Latin America Studies Group shares perspectives on key political, economic and security issues in the region with a focus on understanding context and providing perspective on this region of the world. The program supports theater security cooperation activities of the U.S. Southern Command, U.S. Northern Command, their naval components, and the U.S. Navy.
The study group supports a variety of regionally focused activities: conferences, war games, research projects, faculty travel to conduct lectures, workshops, and curriculum reviews, and NWC and faculty visits from the region to Newport. Additionally, the group supports the Inter-American War Game and the Multilateral War Game.
Latin America Studies Group faculty also prepare and deliver lectures and short courses at naval war colleges, defense staffs, think tanks, and civilian universities throughout the region. The knowledge gained is brought back and incorporated into the college’s core curriculum, electives, and research programs.
Only NWC community members can elect to join several groups with the approval of the individual program director. Please note, this group is not open to the general public.
