In Latin America, as in the United States, former presidents have taken up roles as elder statesmen, promoting conflict resolution and democratic development in the Western Hemisphere. What do they do? Why do they do it? Does it work?

For a decade Shelley McConnell was senior associate director of the Americas Program at The Carter Center. In that capacity, she accompanied 16 former presidents and prime ministers from Latin American countries on election observation missions, to democratic conferences, and to summits of leaders.
