The aim is the comparative study of crisis and crisis management as well as its social and democratic implications, in Europe and Latin America.This process will allow an exchange of information and experiences between Europe and Latin America, but also the opening of a bi-regional dialogue on the social and macroeconomic policies and crisis management, providing additional content to the Strategic Alliance  the Summits EU-CELAC are supposed to build.

Institute of International Relations of the University of Sao Paulo (IRI-USP) (Brazil)

Hellenic Foundation for European and Foreign Policy (ELIAMEP)
