Jpg. Chapter 1 Constructing Regional Order At the seventh summit of the Alianza Bolivariana para los Pueblos de Nuestra América (Bolivarian Alliance for the Americas – ALBA) in Cumaná, Venezuela, in April 2009, leaders from several Latin American and Caribbean nations met to discuss plans to introduce a new regional currency, the Sucre, to replace the dollar as the main trading currency. 1 The meeting was intended to set the tone for the upcoming Summit of the Americas of the OAS. After the president of Cuba, Raul Castro, denounced his country’s ongoing exclusion from the hemispheric body at the ALBA summit, others took the opportunity to send a message to Washington about the independence of the region.
As for Canada, it continued to avoid regional politics and US-dominated institutions such as the OAS throughout the post-war period, largely respecting the US sphere of influence (Klepak 2006). Canadian governments, particularly the Liberal governments of Pierre Trudeau (1968–1979, 1980–1984), maintained a certain degree of foreign policy autonomy, however, breaking ranks with the United States on key foreign policy issues in the region such as Canada’s position towards socialist governments like Cuba and Nicaragua under the Sandinista government of Daniel Ortega, with which it maintained positive relations (Matthews and Pratt 1988).
Here, the focus is on the shared affinity of the United States and Canada for regional forms of governance rooted in neoliberal polyarchy. Section two then examines how US and Canadian approaches to democracy promotion developed within very distinct fields of practice despite this shared affinity; the emphasis is thus on the key differences that mark the approaches of different actors who deliver democracy assistance. The final section provides a neo-Gramscian theorization of how different democracy promotion strategies produce hegemony and, in some cases, counter-hegemony.
