28190: Sprague (comment) Democratization/Globalization Conference (fwd)

 From Jeb Sprague

Talks and discussion on US electoral intervention in Haiti will be
included within this conference.

In The Name of Democracy:

US Electoral Intervention in the Americas

April 7-8, 2006

Yale University

Luce Hall Auditorium
34 Hillhouse Avenue, New Haven

All panels free and open to the public; no registration required

Conference participants will use the context of Latin America's busy
2006 electoral season and the region's "leftward turn" as entry
points for discussing the growth of US "democracy promotion" as a
policy strategy throughout the Americas.  Democracy promotion has
seen very little debate outside the policy rooms of Washington, D.C.
Accordingly, this conference will play host to a lively discussion of
democracy promotion's political, economic, and social ramifications;
its successes and failures; its relationship to concepts of
democracy, intervention, and sovereignty; and its implications for a
region whose electoral politics have increasingly come to defy the
policy objectives of the United States.
