Life is changing in the ‘Global South,’ particularly in Latin America and the Caribbean, where leaders are promoting inclusive societies over mere profit-driven development. Countries like Mexico are setting global standards by surpassing developmental goals, boosting employment and benefits for marginalized groups. The webinar will discuss the potential threat of NATO bases and US military interventions in the region.
