Publication of the proceedings of the seminar EU-LAC / GIGA

In the follow-up of the seminar “New Grounds for the Relations between the European Union, Latin America and the Caribbean – Towards a Relevant Partnership”, the EU-LAC Foundation published a bilingual document with the seminar’s proceedings.

The publication includes a prologue by Enrique García, President of CAF Development Bank of Latin America, an introduction by the Executive Director of the EU-LAC Foundation, Jorge Valdez, the speeches of the opening ceremony as well as the contributions of the panel sessions and the final debate. The publication aims at transmitting the conclusions of the seminar. The latter are related to the main topics of the bi-regional dialogue that will have its expression through the next EU-CELAC Summit of Heads of State and Government, taking place on 26 and 27 January 2013 in Santiago de Chile.

The English version of the publication is available to download further down on this webpage. Moreover, a printed version will be distributed prior to the Santiago Summit.

The seminar was organized by the EU-LAC Foundation and the GIGA German Institute of Global and Area Studies and financed with the support of CAF Development Bank of Latin America and the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg.
