“Should the U.S. Adopt a New AntiNarcotics Strategy?” Latin America Advisor, December 15, 2020

The U.S. counternarcotics strategy should be strengthened, according to TAG Managing Director Amanda Mattingly who provided comment in a recent edition of the Inter-American Dialogue’s daily Latin America Advisor. Amanda argues that “Strengthening the State Department’s hand in working with our allies in the region is a good start, and a Biden-Harris focus on aid and diplomacy in the region will go a long way to fortifying relationships necessary for counternarcotics and border security cooperation.” She also said, “Such supply-side strategies are important, but they are not going to move the needle without robust domestic, demand-side strategies too.”
