The scenario buiding exercise

      | More

The objective of the scenario building process is to stimulate the development of a common vision and an action plan/roadmap for renewed cooperation in the fields of cutural, scientific and social relations through the upgrading of the bilateral relation and the provision of a clearer strategic orientation.

Through this exercise EULAC Focus very ambitiously intends to go beyond any project, initiative or political dialogue that to date has been implemented to underpin the EU-CELAC partnership.

The scenario building process must be instrumental to the development of policy recommendations, which is expected to be one of the key outputs of the EULAC Focus project.

The scenario building exercise took place during the 4th EULAC-FOCUS workshop in Buenos Aires on 8th and 9th November 2017 and was based upon an iterative process that builded on existing work.

During the workshop the team agreed on a shared framework through the identification and validation of Key Forces/Trends and Uncertainties and using the selection criteria plausible, structurally different, internally consistent, have decision-making utility and be challending to conventional thinking:

  • Identified the major features of available EU and LAC scenarios
  • Discarded combinations of scenarios considered non-relevant and/or repetitive
  • Selected three combined scenarios to be developed in more detail during the first semester of 2018

What happens next:

Following a preliminary group discussion of the implications of each of the three selected scenario for the three dimensions relevant to EULAC-Focus that took place during the workshop in Buenos Aires, the team is expected to work on identifiying more detailed implications for each of the policy domains and developing a storyline/plot for each scenario on the basis of specialised inputs.
