This Policy Brief outlines the major challenges and opportunities for the Americas in the fields of peace and democracy support, and highlights the mandate and mechanisms established by the OAS to respond to these challenges. It includes policy recommendations which, if implemented, would help strengthen the OAS’s work in these fields.
