Abstract : This report looks at the relationship between the United States and El Salvador from two perspectives: first, it examines the internal social, political and economic dynamics which brought El Salvador to its present crisis; then it looks at how U.S. policy has evolved over the years to the point where El Salvador has become one of the main recipients of U.S. interest and aid. The paper then reviews in some detail current U.S. policy toward El Salvador, assessing how well it meets both Salvadoran and U.S. goals and objectives. Finally, the author offers some thoughts on how U.S. policy should be modified to serve longer term goals for both El Salvador and the Central American region.
