Multilateralism and Regionalism in challenging times: "Human Rights and Multiculturalism"

This fourth panel is part of a webinar series called "Multilateralism and Regionalism in challenging times: relations between Europe and Latin America and the Caribbean" and will focus on the topic of "Human Rights and Multiculturalism".

This panel discusses how current global challenges have impacted human rights and multiculturalism in EU-LAC and invite speakers to address the following questions:

  • What have the EU and LAC governments been doing to address social tensions and humanitarian crises endangering human rights? What can be done?
  • What is the EU doing to face erosion of human rights and the threat to potential setbacks in a multicultural Europe?
  • What can EU-LAC cooperation do to put human rights and multiculturalism in the multilateral agenda? Have their internal related problems negatively affected cooperation in this field? Or can they foster solutions for both regions to improve human rights?

This webinar series is jointly organised by the Regionalism Observatory (San Tiago Dantas Graduate Program in International Relations - UNESP, UNICAMP-SP, PUC-SP, Brazil), Leuven Centre for Global Governance Studies (KU Leuven, Belgium) and the European Studies Section (University of Coimbra, Portugal), and sponsored by the EU-LAC Foundation (international organisation based in Hamburg, Germany), and aims to foster fruitful debates on pressing topics of the bi-regional agenda, thus providing a constructive and reflexive dialogue among politicians, academics and civil society groups involved in EU-LAC relations.

The initiative was selected in the framework of the EU-LAC Foundation's "IV Annual Call for Co-organising Events on topics relevant to the bi-regional partnership between the European Union (EU), Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC)".
