IBI-The Institute of Brazilian Issues was
established in 1990 to promote stronger U.S.-Brazil relations
within the changing international order. IBI seeks to do so
by working with
all interested parties, and especially the business sectors
of both countries. It encourages the resolution of differences,
to identify areas where relations might be expanded. In essence,
IBI promotes a greater convergence of viewpoints and interests
between the two nations. The Institute operates within the
Center for Latin
American Issues, an integral part of the School of Business.
The Institute's day-to-day activities are organized and directed
by Kevin Kellbach.
