RS 4: Latin America



Moderator: Fernando Casas, SEGIB

Three years ago we held our 3rd Global Forum in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, which led to the recognition of the universal scope of the Alliance of Civilizations. Accordingly, countries from Latin America are about to endorse a Regional Strategy aimed at shaping a framework for cooperation. This will contribute to building inclusive and tolerant societies in this region and to enhancing the role of cultural diversity and intercultural dialogue for development, stability and peace. This session will focus on possible joint initiatives to be prioritized as part of the 1st Action Plan for Latin America that will be developed as an implementation of the objectives of the Strategy. Participants are invited to make recommendations and even commitments for action.
