The EU-LAT Network is a pluralistic network of European movements and organizations that promote solidarity between the people of Latin America and Europe. The network was founded on October 11, 2017 after two European networks – CIFCA (Copenhagen Initiative for Central America and Mexico) and Grupo Sur – decided to join forces in order to strengthen their advocacy actions to promote participatory European policies, with a gender perspective, that contributes to the comprehensive respect for human rights, democratization and sustainable development in Latin America.
The EU-LAT Network’s mission is to promote participatory European policies that contribute to the comprehensive respect of human rights, gender equality, democratization and a fair, inclusive, and sustainable model of society in Latin America. The practices of political dialogue, cooperation and trade between the parties must be governed by these guiding principles and, as an essential element of trade agreements, must have possibilities of enforceability and justiciability.
The network aims to promote the transformation of European policies related to Latin America so that human rights are respected, protected, guaranteed and promoted in the areas of political dialogue, development cooperation and trade and investments.
The EU-LAT Network is composed of 40 members from 12 European countries.
