[ Council on Hemispheric Affairs]
=== [ Council on Hemispheric Affairs] ===
A tiny think tank in Washington run that does Latin American policy (see the [ main page ] for a good sampling). A great opportunity to jump in and get involved with the day-to-day world of policy analysis.
* Pros: The entire staff is exactly one person, so the interns run the place, writing all the articles, attending all of the conferences, editing and publishing a magazine. It's pretty easy to get an internship - [[Alan Cordova]] got one having only taken Intro to IR.
* Cons: That [ one person] is quite a personality, and if you don't like his politics (somewhere in between Chavez and Castro), it is sometimes difficult to get things distributed (he approves all articles). Also, COHA is not exactly the go-to place for Washington power brokers, though if you were at those places, your work would be much less interesting.
