Latin America is not only one of the world areas in which regional integration started early (with some of the political attempts dating from the very moment of independence), but it is also the one in which there is a large abundance of integration schemes: ALADI, ALBA, CAN, CARICOM, MERCOSUR, SICA, UNASUR, and the list does not exhaust the number of existing schemes. This abundance speaks of an interest in integration as an instrument to deal with different, but eventually competing, ends. It also shows the relative lack of robustness of regional integration in Latin America, particularly in comparison to the paradigmatic European model. Lately, though, politicians and scholars have challenged the paradigmatic value of the European model. This seminar will revise some of these topics and will present participants with the practical view brought by both practitioners and scholars
