Re-engaging Latin America‘s Left?
US Relations with Bolivia and Ecuador from Bush to Obama
This report empirically analyzes the evolution of US policies toward Bolivia and Ecuador. Following overviews of political changes in Bolivia and Ecuador and of recent trends in US policy toward Latin America in general, it analyzes, first, how the US administration led by then-President George W Bush reacted to the election of Morales and Correa, who both openly challenged US interests in the two countries. Second, it looks at the Obama Administration in order to identify changes and continuities in US policy, as well as the implications these had for bilateral relations with the two countries.
