After a three-year rupture marked by vitriol, #Colombia and #Venezuela have resumed diplomatic relations.

Our newest report argues that, above all, the détente should generate significant benefits for citizens of both countries.

THREAD [1/6] 🧵👇…
Rebuilding trust and redressing bilateral tensions will take time.

Coordination in health, security, trade, consular and other matters is vital to protecting public well-being, especially of #Venezuelan migrants and refugees in #Colombia. [2/6]…
Negotiations with the #ELN, which restarted on 21 November, will depend to an extent on support from #Venezuela’s government, which is a guarantor and host of the talks but may be reluctant to terminate its partnership with the rebels. [3/6]…

1/ As suggested by @PopovaProf, I'd like to comment on the recent remarks by the #Brazilian president-elect, @LulaOficial, on the #Russian war of aggression in #Ukraine. Needless to say, many were struck by the ignorance and brutishness of these utterances. A 🧵...
2/ But what lies behind this? Many European/US observers seem dumbfounded by the fact that a leader who is widely (and correctly) believed to have bravely stood against dictatorship in his own country would support a genocidal warmonger such as #Putin on the international stage.
3/ The sources of Lula's (and #LatinAmerica's more widely) attitudes towards the war are many, and differ widely between countries, contexts, and social strata. The probably most often mentioned one is anti-Americanism, stemming from a variety of sources, but often relevant...

In the current debate about the future and the place of the faithful in the struggle against capitalism, Latin America has given the world important lessons where memory has scorched indelible names.

More than half a
century ago, on 15 February 1966, Camilo Torres Restrepo, a Colombian priest, partisan of the National Liberation Army (ELN), died a hero's death in a battle with government troops.

"Where Camilo fell
A cross has risen.
Only not a wooden one,
But of light...

He was crucified
2/ Camilo Torres Restrepo
with bullets,
They called him a bandit,
Like Jesus..." - the Chilean bard Victor Jara sang about him.

His life and death is one of thousands of examples of true love for fellow Christians in Latin America.

It is a pity and not a coincidence that today Colombian history is

After Christopher Columbus reached the new world, native Americans are normally depicted as helpless victims swept away from society and civilization during the colonization.
However, the Americans might have actually been a part of the expanding global economy.
An example of this is the Tlingit people of the Pacific Northwest Coast of North America. They developed a metalworking tradition, by using iron from Chinese and Japanese shipwrecks that washed up on the shore.

@kentonthibaut reports on #China’s discourse power activities in #Africa, #LatinAmerica, and the #MiddleEast, how China leverages its reach to gain influence, and the impact these activities have on democratic resilience worldwide. 🧵👇…
@kentonthibaut (2/8): As #China continues to take an increasingly active role on the world’s stage, its efforts have largely bolstered authoritarianism and eroded institutions in fledgling democracies worldwide through their use of their immense diplomatic, media, and political power.
@kentonthibaut (3/8): #China sees disseminating CCP-approved narratives in the Global South to enhance their discourse power as key. The strategy includes:
1. Co-opting foreigners' voices to spread pro-China messaging
2. Using international platforms to spread #propaganda in target environments
