CIPR | Center For Inter-American Policy & Research

Tulane University

About CIPR

The Center for Inter-American Policy and Research (CIPR) is devoted to inter-hemispheric exchanges that will advance the production and dissemination of knowledge about critical policy issues facing the Americas as well as the deepening of academic research in these areas. Its aim is to stimulate contact between scholars and decision-makers working on the region at different locations and in different languages, enriching their production by enabling the confluence of multiple perspectives.

CIPR will focus on contemporary issues of importance to Latin America and inter-American relations. Although this implies a dynamic agenda that will constantly evolve, it will initially focus on three major areas of interest: human development, inter-American relations, and the future of Cuba.

CIPR also seeks to raise awareness about the importance of U.S-Latin American relations outside of academia. For this purpose it will engage business and civic leaders as well as members of the broader community in discussions and exchanges about current events pertaining to inter-American relations.
