Serie of interviews "The American Brief"


Designed and launched by the Fundación Consejo España – EE.UU., The American Brief releases a monthly series of transcribed interviews on current topics to American personalities from politics, business, culture and academics belonging to Fundación’s sphere of action in the United States.

Through this project, the Fundación aims to strengthen its relationship with its community in the United States, shaped over more than twenty years of shared history with its sister organization, the United States – Spain Council, giving voice to its main representatives on topics of interest within the frame of the bilateral relationship, paying special attention to those issues particularly relevant to the Hispanic Communities in the United States.

Interaction around this project can be followed in social networks through the hashtag #TheAmericanBrief
