Regionalism in Latin America: the current stage of flexibility and pragmatism

Latin America‘€™s rich history in the realm of regional integration dates back to the 1950s. Despite the existence of several regional groupings in Central America, the Caribbean and the Southern cone, levels of intra-regional trade have been low and institutionalization weak, limiting opportunities between regions. The last decade, however, is showing progress.

The Center for Inter-American Policy and Research invites you to a lecture by Professor Olivier Dabène, Director of the Political Science Department at the Paris Institute of Political Studies and President of the Political Observatory of Latin America and the Caribbean, on REGIONALISM IN LATIN AMERICA, the current stage of flexibility and pragmatism.

Recent initiatives, including the Venezuelan-sponsored Bolivarian Alliance of the Americas (ALBA), the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR) and the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC), show an evolution of regional agreements toward flexibility and pragmatism. Will the new endeavors between regions prove compatible? Dabène will argue UNASUR may be the most promising regional integration project because of the decisive Brazilian leadership it enjoys.

Olivier Dabène is professor of political science at the Paris Institute of Political Studies (Sciences Po) and senior researcher at the Center for International Studies and Research (CERI, Sciences Po). He is also the President of the Political Observatory of Latin America and the Caribbean (www.opalc.org). and is currently a visiting professor at the University of Montréal (Canada). His latest book in English is titled The Politics of Regional Integration in Latin America (N.Y., Palgrave Macmillan, 2009).
