Giving focus to the Cultural, Scientific and Social Dimension of EU - CELAC relations


Literature repository on EU-CELAC cultural relations

      | More

The literature repository on EU-CELAC cultural relations gathers the relevant literature - mainly published during the last 10 years - on cultural cooperation between the European Union (EU) and Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC).

The repository is publicly available at and has two objectives: on the one hand, to ease the research and the analysis of the state of the art with regard to cultural relations between the EU and LAC; and, on the other hand, to provide an open source database with a keyword search system, containing links to web documents and bibliographic references.

The repository includes 121 documents, divided into the following categories:

  • Firstly, 11 treaties or agreements of a strict juridical nature. Seven of these are treaties fostered by United Nations organisations, three are agreements between the European Union and the Caribbean or Central America, and one is a convention fostered by the Organization of American States.
  • The second group is comprised of 20 declarations and political recommendations approved by international organisations or by the European Union, with different degrees of normative power. Among these documents, the Ibero-American Cultural Charter stands out due to its political importance within the region, as well as the Agenda 21 for Culture.
  • The third cluster consists of 42 experts’ documents and 21 academic publications that analyse and reflect critically on different aspects of cultural relations.
  • Finally, 8 documents of high interest are incorporated into the repository. Most of these documents emerge from international bodies, even though some come from private or mixed organisations.
