There are domestic politics in both Latin America and the EU that affect relations between them, such as Brexit on one side and the presidency of Bolsonaro and the crisis in Venezuela on the other. However, since 2016, the possibility of further developing their interdependence came to seem a desired outcome in order to overcome the decline in multilateralism at the international level, and in response to the protectionist and isolationist stances of the US as well as the rise of China. The book is intended to capture all of the recent changes at the international level and interpret how they would affect Latin America and the European Union. The book aims to discuss this interdependence in order to facilitate a discussion on how significant both regions have become for each other, as well as in relation to other international actors. The chapters discuss European Union–Latin America relations with all of this in mind.Overall, this book offers the different points of views of academics using different approaches to the question of how Latin America and the European Union have engaged with one another over time, considering the role of both domestic and international politics. It seems clear that the political aspect and economic aspect are interlinked. Since 2016 this has only become even more relevant.
