Do Latin America’s autocracies deserve a seat at the Summit of the Americas’ table? Some democratically-elected governments say they do.

Host Ben Rowswell, Canada’s former ambassador to Venezuela, discusses dilemmas of diplomacy in the Americas with Maxwell A. Cameron, professor at the School of Public Policy and Global Affairs at University of British Columbia, and author of the forthcoming book “Challenges to Democracy in the Andes: Strongmen, Broken Constitutions, and Regimes in Crisis”.
