The conference “Managing Multiple Crises in Times of Global Uncertainty: the EU and Latin America in comparison”, was organized on 16 April 2018. It brought together experts, academics and journalists from both Europe and Latin America to discuss the multifaceted crises that have recently been affecting the countries of the two regions, in order to define a roadmap for closer regional cooperation. Both Latin America and the European Union have been hit hard by the global financial crisis and its social consequences, and both have witnessed the rise of populist forces triggered by social discontent – albeit in various forms and with different agendas. The complex and multidimensional nature of the current global context offers considerable scope for stronger EU–Latin America cooperation and for common political ground.
