Reassessing Latin American Integration: Entering a New Stage?
Executive Training Seminar
5 – 7 October 2016
Scientific Coordinators: Carlos Closa | Istituto de Politicas y Bienes Públicos, Spain & European University Institute, Italy
Latin America is after Europe the continent that has seen the most vigorous trend in creating and reproducing regional integration under different labels and schemes. Interpretation of the meaning of regional integration/regionalism varies widely depending on the stand point of the different actors. This seminar discussed divergent/convergent interpretations on the meaning of regional integration/regionalism in its different varieties (i.e. economic, political, security driven, etc.) in Latin America. A distinguished group of highly qualified speakers who have had a leading role in some of the decisions shaping regional organisation/regionalism in the area presented their perspectives on the issue. Additionally, the seminar offered several training exercises bringing insights on the functioning of the different regional organisations and some of their institutions.
