WHAT IS OBREAL?
The European Union – Latin America Observatory (OBREAL) is a network set up by 26 academic institutions and research centers in both regions, which is based in the University of Barcelona.
Its main goal is to promote dialogue and synergies between governmental, academic and social sectors in Europe and Latin America. In this context, OBREAL sets out to "identify and develop all the opportunities offered by the partnership between the two regions to create a better understanding of the regional and sectoral problems which shape policymaking".
OBREAL activities point to create long-lasting relationships between institutions of both regions. Therefore, it is critical for OBREAL to work taking into account specificities and heterogeneity of each region.
