The coronavirus pandemic in Latin America

28-04-2021

Latin America is among the world's regions worst affected by Covid-19, and its economies, employment and even human rights are already suffering seriously, and are expected to continue to do so. Governments and international organisations, including the EU, are making efforts to mitigate the consequences, but the results remain uncertain. This is an update of an 'At a glance' note from October 2020.

The EU and Latin America and the Caribbean: towards a stronger partnership?

13-01-2020

In the course of the past two and a half years, the European Parliament, the European Commission and the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, and the Council of Ministers have presented strategic documents on the EU's relations with Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) and the direction they should take in the coming years.

In the course of the past two and a half years, the European Parliament, the European Commission and the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, and the Council of Ministers have presented strategic documents on the EU's relations with Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) and the direction they should take in the coming years. This in-depth analysis aims to present the main points of view of the three EU institutions and the Member States on the future of EU-LAC relations. Its second half includes a critical assessment of some aspects of the bi-regional relationship as it has developed in recent years, particularly the institutional links and trade issues, and the challenges it may face in the coming years. Here, the focus is on the political divisions in the LAC region, the uncertainty about regional cooperation and integration and the possible challenges to multilateral policies.

Handel der EU mit Lateinamerika und der Karibik: Überblick und Zahlen

16-12-2019

Die 33 Länder, die die Gemeinschaft der Lateinamerikanischen und Karibischen Staaten (CELAC) bilden, sind der fünftgrößte Handelspartner der EU. Die EU hat vollwertige Abkommen mit zwei lateinamerikanischen Zusammenschlüssen (Cariforum und Zentralamerikagruppe), ein multilaterales Handels-abkommen mit drei Staaten der Andengemeinschaft (Kolumbien, Ecuador und Peru) und Abkommen mit Mexiko und Chile, die derzeit modernisiert werden. Darüber hinaus hat die EU interregionale und bilaterale Rahmenabkommen ...

Darüber hinaus hat die EU interregionale und bilaterale Rahmenabkommen sowohl mit dem Mercosur als auch mit seinen einzelnen Mitgliedern geschlossen. Die zwischen der EU und Zusammenschlüssen sowie einzelnen Ländern in Lateinamerika und der Karibik geschlossenen Abkommen über Handelsbeziehungen weisen in Bezug auf Anwendungsbereich und Methodik je nach Zeitpunkt, zu dem sie geschlossen wurden, und Kontext der Verhandlungen deutliche Unterschiede auf. Die EU modernisiert derzeit die Handelssäulen ihrer Abkommen mit Mexiko (eine „Grundsatzvereinbarung“ wurde im April 2018 erzielt) und Chile (die Verhandlungen laufen noch), um sie an die derzeitigen Normen der FHA der EU anzupassen. Wenn das Assoziierungsabkommen zwischen der EU und dem Mercosur, für dessen Handelssäule im Juni 2019 eine politische Einigung erzielt wurde, erfolgreich ratifiziert wird, hätte die EU umfassende Abkommen über Handelsbeziehungen mit nahezu allen lateinamerikanischen und karibischen Staaten (mit Ausnahme von Bolivien, Kuba und Venezuela).

South-South and triangular cooperation in Latin America

26-03-2019

Over the past few decades, South-South and triangular cooperation (TrC) among developing countries has been acquiring increasing importance as a necessary complement to traditional North-South development cooperation. The United Nations (UN) High Level Conference on Technical Cooperation among Developing Countries held in Argentina in 1978 set the basic framework for this form of cooperation with its Buenos Aires Plan of Action (BAPA). The model was recently modified by the UN 2030 Agenda for Development ...

Over the past few decades, South-South and triangular cooperation (TrC) among developing countries has been acquiring increasing importance as a necessary complement to traditional North-South development cooperation. The United Nations (UN) High Level Conference on Technical Cooperation among Developing Countries held in Argentina in 1978 set the basic framework for this form of cooperation with its Buenos Aires Plan of Action (BAPA). The model was recently modified by the UN 2030 Agenda for Development and its 17 sustainable development goals, together with the Addis Ababa Action Agenda for financing development cooperation. The Latin American region has been a pioneer of South-South cooperation (SSC), both bilateral and regional, as well as of TrC and SSC with other developing regions. Its various regional and sub-regional integration mechanisms, including the UN Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), and the Ibero-American Conference, have established their own cooperation bodies. Moreover, since 2006, this cooperation has been described in detail in an annual report on South-South cooperation in Ibero-America. The 2019 UN High Level Conference on South-South Cooperation, held in Buenos Aires from 20 to 22 March 2019, 40 years after the Buenos Aires Action Plan (BAPA +40), presented a unique opportunity to tailor SSC and TrC more closely to the 2030 Agenda and its sustainable development goals. The EU took part in the conference and contributed to the outcome document. The EU promotes this type of cooperation as part of its European Consensus for Development, and has launched a regional facility to this effect.

This publication provides an overview of trade relations between the EU and Latin American and Caribbean countries and groupings. The EU has fully fledged agreements with two Latin American groupings (Cariforum and the Central America group), a multiparty trade agreement with three members of the Andean Community (Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru), and bilateral agreements with Chile and Mexico. Since November 2017, a new agreement governing trade relations with Cuba has also been provisionally applied. In addition, the EU is currently modernising its agreements with Mexico (with which it has reached an 'agreement in principle') and Chile. The EU also has framework agreements with Mercosur and its individual members (Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, and Uruguay). The agreement with the former will be replaced, once the ongoing negotiations on an EU-Mercosur association agreement have been completed. This publication provides recent data on trade relations between the EU and Latin American and Caribbean countries and groupings, compares the main agreements governing trade relations that are already in place, and analyses the rationale behind the ongoing negotiations on the EU-Mercosur, EU-Mexico and EU-Chile agreements. This is a revised and updated edition of a publication from October 2017 by Gisela Grieger and Roderick Harte, PE 608.793.

EU security cooperation with Latin America: A priority requiring consolidation

23-11-2017

Although security cooperation is not yet a well-consolidated priority for the EU in its relations with Latin America, it has acquired increasing importance with the explicit inclusion of citizen security as a new priority area in the 2015 EU-CELAC action plan. The main current areas of EU security-related cooperation with the region are the fight against drugs; violence prevention; conflict resolution in Colombia, with an EU stake in its peace process; and the participation of some Latin American ...

Although security cooperation is not yet a well-consolidated priority for the EU in its relations with Latin America, it has acquired increasing importance with the explicit inclusion of citizen security as a new priority area in the 2015 EU-CELAC action plan. The main current areas of EU security-related cooperation with the region are the fight against drugs; violence prevention; conflict resolution in Colombia, with an EU stake in its peace process; and the participation of some Latin American countries in EU crisis-management operations in the framework of the EU's Common Security and Defence Policy. This is achieved through trans-regional, regional, sub-regional and bilateral programmes and projects, as well as through the conclusion of framework agreements with certain Latin American countries. The European Parliament is particularly involved in promoting security cooperation with the region, as evidenced by its support for a Euro-Latin American Charter for Peace and Security, in the framework of the Euro-Latin American Parliamentary Assembly, and the adoption of specific resolutions on the subject.

Die langjährigen Verhandlungen der EU mit dem Mercosur über ein Assoziierungsabkommen bauen auf bestehenden bilateralen und interregionalen Rahmenabkommen mit dem Mercosur und seinen einzelnen Mitgliedern auf. Die zwischen der EU und Zusammenschlüssen sowie einzelnen Ländern in Lateinamerika und der Karibik geschlossenen Abkommen über Handelsbeziehungen weisen in Bezug auf Anwendungsbereich und Methodik je nach Zeitpunkt, zu dem sie geschlossen wurden, und Kontext der Verhandlungen deutliche Unterschiede auf. Die EU möchte jetzt die Handelssäulen ihrer Abkommen mit Mexiko (laufende Verhandlungen, die bis Ende 2017 abgeschlossen werden sollen) und Chile (geplant) modernisieren, um sie an die derzeitigen Normen der FHA der EU anzupassen. Zudem beabsichtigen die EU und der Mercosur, ihre Verhandlungen über ein umfassendes Abkommen über Handelsbeziehungen bis Ende 2017 abschließen. Gelingt ihnen dies, hätte die EU Abkommen über Handelsbeziehungen mit nahezu allen lateinamerikanischen und karibischen Staaten (mit Ausnahme Boliviens, Kubas und Venezuelas) geschlossen.
