Research Handbook on the European Union and International Organizations

Edited by Ramses A. Wessel and Jed Odermatt

Over the years, the European Union has developed relationships with other international institutions, mainly as a result of its increasingly active role as a global actor and the transfer of competences from the Member States to the EU. This book presents a comprehensive and critical assessment of the EU’s engagement with other international institutions, examining both the EU’s representation and cooperation as well as the influence of these bodies on the development of EU law and policy.

Chapter 31: The EU and Latin America

Joren Selleslaghs


EU external relations with Latin America are characterized by region to region interaction and support to the regional organizations of Central America (SICA), South America (Mercosur/UNASUR) and the Andean region (CAN). This chapter analyses the exact nature of these region to region relations, which are rich in terms of size, depth, actors and levels of interaction involved. As will be argued in this chapter, the EU–Latin American interregional relationship is quite innovative and refreshing from a foreign policy (analysis) point of view and can best be described as beyond economics, beyond institutions, low interdependence and (only of) mutual benefice through refined and targeted interregional cooperation.
