41 - Who Controls the Caribbean?

In 1823 US President James Monroe declared "The Monroe Doctrine", that the Western hemisphere would be the backyard of the United States. That doctrine is now almost 200 years old and the world is a very different place, European powers such as the Netherlands, UK and France all hold colonies in the Sea; and other players such as Venezuela and Cuba are putting forward competition as well. 

The real threat for the US though may come from outside powers shopping around for strategic footholds in an area the US regularly overlooks. 

On the panel this week. 

Ivelaw Griffiths (CSIS)
Vicki Assevero (Atlantic Council)
Victor Bulmer-Thomas (Chatham House)
