The summer course “European Union-Latin America and the Caribbean Relations: A Renewed Agenda and a Programme for Recovery Under the SDGs”, organised in close collaboration between Yuste Foundation and the EU-LAC Foundation, and which also counted with the collaboration of the Ibero-American General Secretariat (SEGIB),  Euroamérica Foundation and the University of Extremadura, was held online from 19-23 July 2021. It started with the understanding that already before the pandemic, Latin America and the Caribbean had its lowest economic growth period in the last seven decades after years of high-rate economic growth.

The course was organised within the framework of the Conference on the Future of Europe, which was promoted by the European Institutions, and was led by Rebeca Grynspan, the Ibero-American Secretary General of the SEGIB, Adrián Bonilla, Director of the EU-LAC Foundation,  and coordinated by Miguel Ángel Martín Ramos, head of European Affairs and delegate of Yuste Foundation in Brussels, and Lorena Chano Regaña, professor of Constitutional Law at the University of Extremadura, who served as secretaries and moderators of the course.

The present document includes the various syntheses, in the form of a rapporteurship, of the presentations that were part of this course.
