LONG, Tom. Fragmented Colossus: the “Inter-domestic” Agenda and Latin American Foreign Policy.Traducido porLorena Murillo S.. Foro int [online]. 2017, vol.57, n.1, pp.5-54. ISSN 0185-013X.

“Inter-domestic” issues, such as trade, migration and drug trafficking, play a heavy role in contemporary relations between the United States and Latin America. This article argues that domestic issues face more stakeholders who hold vetoes and have fewer “win-sets” than traditional foreign policy issues, further hampering attempts to influence U.S. policies. This thesis is examined taking as an example the case of the dispute between the United States and Mexico over the border crossing of trucks and the twenty years that the Mexican government had to fight U.S. officials and interest groups to get the country to comply with nafta regulations. After briefly examining other similar issues, the paper concludes that inter-domestic issues require different diplomatic strategies on the part of Latin American legislators.

Palabras llave : inter-domestic; transnational; foreign policy; United States-Latin America relations; Mexico-United States relations; border crossing of trucks; interest groups.
