Located in the capital of the United States, the Washington Hub focuses on US international relations. Questions of US-European relations and American defense are current priorities, as well as US/Latin American relations because of the Hub’s attachment to Georgetown University’s Center for Latin American Studies.
Since its creation in 2008, the Washington Hub of the Institut des Amériques is hosted by Georgetown University. It is located in the CLAS, the Center for Latin American Studies. The local faculty advisor, Erick Langer, is a member of the Advisory Committee of the IdA and professor in the CLAS.
