Honduras : Conditions, Issues & U.S. Relations Paperback / softback

Edited by Diego Pineda

Description

Honduras, a Central American nation of 7.9 million people, has had close ties with the United States over many years.

The country served as a base for U.S. operations in Central America during the 1980s, and it continues to host a U.S. military presence and co-operate on anti-drug efforts today.

Trade and investment linkages are also long-standing, and have grown stronger in recent years through the implementation of the Dominican Republic-Central America-United States Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA-DR).

Migration is another central concern in bilateral relations; over 702,000 Hispanics of Honduran origin live in the United States -- nearly two-thirds of whom are foreign born.

Although the U.S.-Honduras relationship was somewhat strained as a result of the 2009 political crisis in Honduras, close co-operation quickly resumed in 2010.

Since then, broad U.S. policy goals in Honduras have included a strengthened democracy with an effective justice system that protects human rights and enforces the rule of law, and the promotion of sustainable economic growth with a more open economy and improved living conditions.

This book examines current conditions in Honduras as well as issues in U.S-Honduras relations with a focus on human rights, international religious freedom and investment climate economics.
