Higher Education, Citizenship & LAC-EU Area

OBREAL’s vision is that cooperation in the area of higher education is a key component of the relations between Latin America, the Caribbean and the European Union. Cooperation in this area becomes a bridge that generates enduring links shaping the future of both regions. It also has important impacts on other areas of cooperation. For this reason, OBREAL is aware that debates on cooperation in higher education cannot take place independently of a broader debate which addresses the impact of cooperation on the advancement of equity and social cohesion in Latin America. Lastly, education also serves as a mechanism to reinforce Latin American and Caribbean integration in so far as citizens are included in this process.

The goal of the area of Higher Education, Citizenship and LAC-EU Space is to develop activities that encourage links between both regions in the field of education in order to expand the debate on the LAC-EU space on higher education.
