Made possible by the generous support of the National Endowment for Democracy, this report is the third in a project to analyze and track the foreign policies of governments in the Americas and those of other select countries of the Global South as they relate to democracy and human rights, and the international norms and practices that have emerged in the past 50 years to defend and protect them. Using this report’s analysis as a baseline, we provide updates and media alerts on votes and actions by states in the hemisphere—including the U.S.—and explore how those affect democratic governance and human rights. The goal is to promote greater discussion and accountability of foreign policy in the Western Hemisphere and monitor governments’ commitments—in words and deeds—to the liberal global order.
