1. Gibson, Scott. U.S. Security Partnerships in Latin America: How a Lack of Sustainability is Preventing Stability.

Degree: 2014, Johns Hopkins University

This thesis is meant to examine the influence of U.S. security partnerships on Latin American nations. With four major partnerships created in the past fifteen years, it is important to review the successes and failures of these relationships, and see what improvements can be made. Each chapter examines a different partnership, as well as its effect on the partner countries and the region. Chapter One focuses on Plan Colombia and the balloon effect in South America. It argues that Plan Colombia played a part in the balloon effect in Latin America. It did this by observing drug-related crime rates in Colombia, as well as drug-related crime in surrounding states. While not causation, the data showed Plan Colombia likely played a part in the balloon effect’s presence in South America, with neighboring state Peru now the world’s cocaine capital. Chapter Two covers the Mérida Initiative and the United States’ fear of spillover crime from Mexico. This chapter explored whether or not the Mérida Initiative was a preemptive or reactive effort from the United States. It did this by reviewing crime rates on both sides of the border in relation to Mérida funding, and estimated the sustainability of the programs once funding ceased. The data showed that while crime did reduce with Mérida funding, the sustainability was limited after funding stopped. Chapter Three reviews both the Central America Regional Security Initiative as well as the Caribbean Basin Security Initiative, and examines the effect of a hegemon’s relationship with a weaker power. This was done by observing crime rates over time, as well as other state concerns such as debt as percentage of GDP, unemployment rates, and GDP per capita, to see how partner countries fared in areas other than security while receiving funds. The data showed mixed results, as some countries showed a decrease in unemployment and crime, while others showed drastic increases in debt as percentage of GDP, unemployment rates, and even crime. Overall, this thesis shows the limited scope and reactive efforts of U.S. security partnerships in Latin America, and how they have affected the region over the past fifteen years. Advisors/Committee Members: Stout, Mark (advisor).

2. Esno, Tyler P. For Freedom and Free Enterprise: The Origins, Development, and Legacies of Ronald Reagan's Caribbean Basin Initiative.

Degree: MA, History (Arts and Sciences), 2012, Ohio University

In 1982, Ronald Reagan unveiled the Caribbean Basin Initiative (CBI). CBI was an aid, trade, and investment program intended to foster economic growth in the Caribbean Basin, thereby alleviating the socio-economic misery that led Basin people to embrace Communism. Although Reagan claimed the program was an urgent priority, it took Congress two sessions to pass CBI, and it had mixed economic results. This study uncovers the origins of CBI, the reasons Congress hesitated to act, and CBI’s impact. CBI was the Reagan administration’s response to Communist expansion in the Basin, and conservative think tanks and Reagan’s political philosophy shaped the initiative. In Congress, CBI became entangled in debates over the administration’s controversial Central American policies and fears that the initiative would hurt the U.S. economy during a severe economic recession. Although CBI had mixed economic results, it increased U.S. economic and political dominance in the region. Advisors/Committee Members: Pach, Chester (Committee Chair).

3. Lucero, Cristina M. The central american free trade agreement: Effects on labor in the maguila sector.

Degree: International Studies, 2011, Depaul University

The rapid expansion of free trade has challenged workers rights in Central America.  Unions are continuously deprived of customary support and resources to enforce their rights, especially in the maquiladoras. The expansion of maquila production has often been accompanied by an informal agreement between corporations and governments that do not serve to protect workers’ rights. Police and military routinely patrol factories and free trade zones (FTZs) to deter union organizing and women are constantly subjected to sexual harassment. In order to help address labor violations, trade agreements like the Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA) includes workers’ rights provisions in the body of the agreement. Therefore, this thesis asks: will signing CAFTA lead to the protection of labor rights in Central America?  The answer is no
