Shaping El Salvador

Dr. Erik Ching is a specialist on El Salvador and has authored numerous books and articles on Salvadoran history.

After the Trump administration’s decision to cancel a program that gave nearly 200,000 Salvadorans temporary status to live and work in the United States, many Salvadorans believe that the United States will once again shape the fate of their country. Furman History Professor Erik Ching was quoted in a story in The New York Times that examined how an influx of returning Salvadorans might affect the nation. “The U.S. has such a deep impact on El Salvador for its own foreign policy needs that it bears significant responsibility, not only for the flow of migrants out of El Salvador into the U.S., but also for the current conditions of violence that exist there,” Ching said. Ching, who joined the Furman faculty in 1998, is the author of Stories of Civil War in El Salvador: A Battle Over Memory.
