Every year, hundreds of thousands of residents of Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador flee poverty and chronic violence, some risking everything to make their way north to the United States and the hope of safety and economic opportunity. Despite international cooperation and domestic efforts to promote development, implement tough-on-crime policies, and tackle the long-standing corruption that has been a persistent drag on the region’s economies, gains have been limited and fleeting. More recently all three states have seen a backslide towards authoritarian politics as the pandemic exacerbated many of the region’s persistent challenges, especially gender-based violence.
Join the World Affairs Council on April 11 at 12 PM for a virtual conversation with Arturo Aguilar of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund and Ana María Méndez Dardón of the Washington Office of Latin America (WOLA). These regional experts will discuss the complicated politics and economics of the Northern Triangle and what policies might bring meaningful change to the people of the Northern Triangle.
