|In this study, the author analyses the new relations between the United States and Latin America in the frame of the post-cold war era. The difference between power and sense, the threat to democracy and the challenge to global security on behalf of the transnational groups, are the dynamics of the post-cold war that provide a general frame for these relations. The agenda includes topics such as the fight against poverty and economic development, the regional security and the migration, seen from the point of view of the North American foreign relations, which include the multilateralism, and demilitarization of foreign affairs. A period of hemispheric relations where the consensus will mark the tone and the cooperation will be the main mechanism in order to advance in the economic development and the institutional strengthening is expected. A new tone in relations but not a new model. But, although, an attempt to find meeting places without neglecting the big strategic guidelines developed since September 11 2001.
