Abstract : Underdevelopment and instability constitute Latin America's problem in achieving the peaceful, democratic economic and social progress necessary for the well-being of the Western Hemisphere. The objective of the study is to analyze this problem, and to assess Organization of American States (OAS) capabilities of providing the framework for an inter-American defense force. Such an inter-America defense force appears to be an appropriate and feasible approach to problems in Latin America which may require outside assistance.
