Lecture to examine Chinese influence in Latin America

Mr. Motley is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and serves on the executive committee of the American Academy of Diplomacy Board of Directors.
The Student Association for Inter-American Affairs seeks to foster interest and understanding of U.S.-Latin American affairs at The Citadel. In spring 2011, the association will publish the inaugural issue of “The Hemispheric Review,” a bilingual undergraduate journal for U.S-Latin American affairs.
