At Watching the Americas we aim to take our passion for Latin American history, culture and politics and give you an informative and, sometimes, amusing take on the issues of the ever-changing region. We hope you enjoy reading about this often misrepresented and unreported region and if you have any comments or feedback, we are always happy to be contacted.
Ben Butcher – I’m currently a student at the University of Bath and about to start an internship with Oxfam in Brussels. My writing experience includes a stint with bathimpact, as well as acting as a guest writer for Development Intern. Having travelled round Latin America a couple of times, my key interests are regional politics and 20th Century history.
