International Laboratory on World Order Studies and the New Regionalism of National Research University Higher School of Economics (HSE University) is holding special online-seminar with renowned experts from the Autonomous University of Madrid on: "Latin America's place in Spain's foreign policy interests: Madrid's view".

Back at the beginning of the third millennium, the famous Mexican historian L. Meyer noted that Latin America—Spain relations were traditionally characterized by "constant asymmetry ... the result of the preservation of factors typical of the previous stage, the colonial one." Such asymmetry in economic, political, and cultural relations has become a legacy of the three-century colonial period. But by the beginning of the third decade of the XXI century, relations between Spain and Latin American states began to focus on the development of cooperation and the elimination of disharmony. Now the Spanish Government is actively developing a Latin American policy that will benefit the entire European Community. 

What is the place of Latin American countries in Spain's foreign policy now? How does the transformation of the political landscape of the "burning continent" affect the Spain-Latin America dialogue? Are the relations between Spain and Latin American countries truly "special", or is it an established stereotype? 

These and other questions will be answered by leading experts in international relations from the Autonomous University of Madrid (Spain). 

Participants and listeners of the seminar will have a unique opportunity to get acquainted with the "Madrid view" of Latin America. 

Speakers: 

1. Dr. Álvaro Soto Carmina, PhD, professor of UAM, with the report "Latin America on the way to democracy".

2. Dr. Pedro A. Martínez Lillo, PhD, professor of UAM, with the report " Latin American vector in Spanish external policy: The End of the Cold War and the New World Order".

3. Dr. José Luis Neila Hernández, PhD, professor of UAM, with the report " The main trends and approaches of Spain in relation to Latin America in the XX and XXI century".
