Final LACalytics Publication
After almost one year of preparation, selection and reviewal, the LACalytics Team publishes “EU-LAC Cooperation in the 21st Century: Combining efforts in a globalised world“. A total of 46 authors from 23 countries participated in the programme. Their work has been extensively published online over the past months. The twelve best contributions are featured in this publication, which manifests the programme´s interregional approach through its trilingual content.
For these proposals to be noticed and to influence policy making, we cooperate with senior politicians, entrepreneurs and civil society representatives both via the dialogue in this publication as well as during the LACalytics Conference, taking place from the 22nd to the 25th of October 2016 in Hamburg, Germany.
It is against this background that we express our gratitude to all individuals and organisations who cooperate with the programme, may it be by distributing our call for application, publishing and sharing the analyses online or by contributing to this publication and the conference. We are especially thanking our cooperation partners, the EU-LAC Foundation and the German Federal Foreign Office, as well as the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg. Lastly, we kindly invite anyone who finds inspiration in our work to get in touch for future cooperations with LACalytics.
