Field Programs


In FY 2019, Alan L. Freed Associates is offering a menu of one-day field programs that can be presented at military installations around the United States. The format for each field program is identical to the programs held on Capitol Hill. Please note that each program can be modified to address specific areas of concern to individual agencies/organizations.

 

Program Description


Some parts of Central and South America are emerging as major players on the global economic stage, while others like Venezuela and Bolivia are resisting this historical transformation. Failure to reform these and other economies assures the continuation of internal instability; increased immigration; the proliferation of global terrorism; and provides opportunities for influence from countries such as Russia, China, and Iran, whose aspirations are not necessarily compatible with U.S. national and international security interests. This one-day seminar will explore these and other issues in U.S.-Latin America relations.

 

Seminar Topics


  • Central and South America in Transition: Uncertainty and Shifting Coalitions
  • Challenges Facing the New Administration in Latin America
  • Political Economy of Extremes in the Southern Cone of the Americas
  • China, North Korea and Iran in Latin America: Why We Should Care
  • Transnational Crime: The Emerging Criminal/Terror Nexus in the Region
  • Economic Opportunities and Security Challenges in Latin America
  • Not Too Distant Neighbors: Misconceptions About Central America
  • The Politics of Border Security…or Insecurity?

Exceptionally relevant topics and highly-credentialed speakers; very thought-provoking, in a great way; all speakers were appropriate as were the topics. As well-run and organized a class/course as I’ve ever been to.

B.K., Air Force • National and International Secuirty Leadership Seminar February 2017

Format is terrific! Lots of speakers from across government enterprise and no power points. Plenty of time for engaging dialogue. I love to hear what experts and insiders have to say about out WDC enterprise.

J. Haywood, Wright Patterson Air Force Base

End-to-end, an amazing group of speakers, with most diverse backgrounds. I could listen to each of the speakers for hours on end. Their collective knowledge is truly incredible.
