The article discusses the notion, promoted by the United States, of information sharing in the context of a maritime partnership among the naval powers of North America, Latin America, and the Caribbean. The need for American cooperation to prevent maritime trafficking in illegal drugs, weapons, and humans, as well as terrorism, is discussed, as is the concept of "maritime domain awareness" and its place in the proposed American security network. Also discussed is concern among some in Latin America about the proposed network as a possible cover for U.S. imperialistic designs in the region.
