Over two decades of intense cooperation between the EU and Latin America, the EU provided €1 billion of investment in the region; a sum expected to more than double between 2014-2020. The presence of European companies and FDI has been on the rise in Latin America. In this context, the lecture will focus on social and political dynamics in today’s EU-Latin America’s relations, specifically:
