Royal Monastery of Yuste. 17 – 18 July 2017
This course will provide a continuation of the lines of analysis and study of the Campus Yuste and CEXECI Programme on the perspectives and challenges of the European Union, the process of integration with Latin America, Latin America’s economic situation, and the future of the Ibero-American Community.
At the start of the 1990s with the fall of the Berlin wall, the world ushered in a new era with the triumph of economic liberalism and the start of so-called open regionalism, launching NAFTA and MERCOSUR, an Americas initiative, and a relaunch of EU-ASEAN.
At the end of last year the influential magazine The Economist questioned whether, with the triumph of Trump in the United States, added to Brexit, we may find ourselves facing the end of the era of globalisation.
What is certain is that having just reached 60 years since its launch, the process of European integration is navigating one of the lowest points in its history.
The United States in the Trump era struggles between breakdowns and continuity, yet still without an impact of the shocks on Latin America.
In the face of the differences opening up between the United States and Europe, Latin America has become, in the words of Chief European Diplomat Federica Mogherini, “a strategic relationship for the EU, even more essential now than it was before. The Ibero-American Community is – on both sides of the Atlantic – a space which is gaining more relevance, because common values are becoming an asset to strengthen in a world so difficult to decode”.
