Please join us for a public discussion on the security issues facing Central America with Assistant Secretary of State for International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs Ambassador William Brownfield.
Drug-fueled violence is increasing across Central America, challenging governments and undermining democratic gains. To address this, U.S. Secretary of State Clinton traveled to Guatemala recently to meet with regional counterparts to develop a strategy for action. What are the prospects for success? What should Central America be doing to make progress, and what can the United States and the international community do to assist?
Ambassador Brownfield, who traveled with Secretary Clinton, will discuss these and other important topics in public remarks followed by engagement with members of the audience.
