Starting today, at the end of each week I will post a weekly roundup of articles, reports and other analyses on developments in Latin America and U.S. relations in the region that I have found particularly interesting. Please feel free to add  your takes on these “reads of the week” in the comments section!

  • Good summary by my CFR colleague Ted Alden and co-author Bryan Roberts of what we know, what we don’t know, and what we need to know to develop a better U.S. border policy.
  • Interesting analysis on how drug cartels evolve, and the role Calderón’s security strategy has played in accelerating this process.
