The study "The EU and CELAC: Reinvigorating a strategic partnership" is the result of an on-line consultation and five reflection fora coordinated by the EU-LAC Foundation geared towards kindling the debate on and integrating different voices to the interregional debate in the run-up of the EU-CELAC Summit to be held in Brussels in June 2015.
In the Forums and the on-line consultation, various actors from both regions – scholars, civil society, ex-government officials, representatives of economic organisations, etc.—were asked to comment on four axes: a) the ways in which bi-regional dialogue may be benefitted given the constitution of CELAC as a political platform of regional interlocution and a body to coordinate regional responses, b) crisis in democracy; c) global political economy and “mega-regional” agreements and d) venues of cooperation post-MDGs 2015. The paper argues that these four themes could be key on the future of the bi-regional partnership.
