    This week, Latin Pulse provides a special focus on this weekend's Summit of the Americas. This is the first such summit in three years, and two of the biggest issues revolve around decriminalizing drugs and bringing Cuba back into the hemisphere's wider diplomatic community. The program discusses these issues, Brazil's rising economic and diplomatic power regarding the summit and this week's meeting between President Barack Obama and Brazil's President Dilma Rousseff, among other matters relating to the summit. Beyond discussing whether the summit will reveal more about the contentious relationship between the U.S. and Venezuela, the program includes news about a sensational kidnapping in Caracas this week.

    In-Depth Interviews:
    Robert Pastor of American University, and
    Peter Hakim of the Inter-American Dialogue.

    Executive Producer: Rick Rockwell
    Associate Producer: Vanessa Haces Gonzatti
