Cold War Dynamics and Actors in Central America and the Caribbean

Although the Cold War can be broadly defined as the confrontation between the two superpowers and the resulting constitution of a bipolar world, a more detailed analysis reveals that its geopolitical, economic and cultural protagonists were not necessarily states, but a large number of international actors interacting with each other. They often had common or complementary interests, different possibilities and peculiar limitations. To give just a few examples, political parties, liberation movements, diasporas, cultural institutions, intelligence and security services were in constant interaction across national borders. Their connections were the real networks of international relations. Central America and the Caribbean is undoubtedly one of the regions most affected by these dynamics, which are intertwined due to the diversity of international actors involved. The dossier will include original articles that analyse these interactions between international actors in this region during the Cold War, exploring tensions, conflicts and alleged contradictions of contemporary international history, which was being shaped by processes of decolonisation, internationalisation and the global Cold War. The proposals will be selected by the double-blind method and published in a special issue of the journal “Études Caribéenes” in the first half of 2025.
