The current heating up of the political and military situation in the South Atlantic area as we move closer to the 30th anniversary of the Argentine seizure of the islands in 1982 is a troubling event which might have been foreseen in the context of the major changes occurring in South America at the present time. Despite all manner of ideological and other differences among the governments of the continent, there is a level of political collaboration going on which most observers feel has never existed before. The impact of this on the international relations of the region, and specifically on the question of the Falkland Islands, is substantial and potentially worrying.
Speakers: Hal Klepak, Emeritus Professor of the Royal Canadian Military College will analyse the dispute over the Falklands Islands and consider the strategic and political options for settling it. Professor Klepak is a Visiting Fellow at ISA and the author of Raul Castro and Cuba: A Military Story, soon to appear in the ISA/Palgrave Studies of the Americas series. He has a long trajectory of study of the Falklands issue and is a close student of the diplomatic and military context of Latin America and the United Kingdom.
