“…In fact, the movement towards the use of the Gramscian approach applied to International Relations has been slow and relatively new, as stated by Stephan Gill (1993). Likewise, with the end of Cold War and, in particular after 9/11, there seems to be a tacit understanding among internationalists that Latin America had been neglected by the United States (Hakim 2006;Riggirozzi and Tussie 2012;Lima 2013;Long 2015).

“…It maintains linkages with and wields leverage over the other member states as well as the OAS Secretariat, which is not only located in Washington next to the White House, but also dependent on US financial contributions (Closa and Casini, 2016). However, the scholarship on inter-American relations has shown that, despite the great asymmetry between the United States and Latin American countries, the United States rarely gets what it wants without the support of key Latin American states that wield great influence on delimited sub-regions, such as Brazil in South America and Mexico in Central America (Levick and Schulz, 2020;Long, 2017;Palestini, 2020;Shaw, 2004).…”
