Spain and Latin America: from a special relation to detachment?

Spain and Latin America: from a special relation to detachment?

This book chapter by Andrea C. BianculliIBEI Assistant Professor, shows that accommodation and compromise between the idea of an Iberoamerican community, based on a shared history and common values, on the one hand, and material objectives, on the other, were easily reached during the 1980s and 1990s, assuring Spain’s leadership in LAC and in the European Union (EU). With the turn of the century, though, this strain became more pronounced. Published in The Oxford Handbook of Spanish Politics, edited by D. Muro and I. Lago.

Published at the Oxford University Press.
