Abstract / Description of output

This collection of essays exploring Why Latin America Matters aims to make the case for the importance of Latin America as a crucial region in global politics and development. With its rich history, cultures, enormous resilience and creative innovation in the face of constant threats against nature and human dignity, Latin America can indeed show the way forward for the world.

These essays are presented as an attempt to provide a deeper understanding of significant social, political, economic, environmental,and cultural approaches that have taken place in Latin America during recent decades. These experiences, and perspectives, offer concrete lessons that can provide a decisive framework for profound reflection over growing challenging issues in other regions – particularly in Europe– and at a global scale.
