OAS Defends its Turf.
In this release...
While the OAS has enjoyed hemispheric dominance over the 19 decades, the formation of new regional groupings like CELAC and UNASUR means that some have come to question the future of the almost two century-old organization. Proponents of the new group like CELAC founder and Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, claim that the OAS' influence in the region is on the decline while the OAS insists that it can work hand-in-hand with these new groups in order to help solve some of the regions most pressing problems. COHA examines the rise and impact of these new organizations on hemispheric relations.
This analysis was prepared by COHA Research Associate Ekow Bartels-Kodwo Research Associate for Council on Hemispheric Affairs. Additional contributions by Director Larry Birns and Research Associate Roman Suver.
