Although geographically far apart, with different social structures, Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) and the European Union (EU) are united, at least in part, by shared values and history. In a shifting geopolitical landscape, particularly with the new position of emerging countries and the United States’ changing role, where does the relationship between LAC and the EU stand? How can it be strengthened? And is it in the interest of both regions to do so?
Right after the LAC-EU ministerial meeting and the OECD Development Centre’s International Forum on Latin America and the Caribbean, and using recent articles published by Le Grand Continent, this DEV Talk will be an opportunity to discuss High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs, Josep Borrell’s geopolitical strategy, with a focus on LAC-EU relations. As the world strives to recover from the impacts of the crisis, this debate will assess the role the two regions could play by joining forces to spearhead a New Deal for stronger, more inclusive and sustainable societies and economies.
