Options for regional integration

This article analyses one of the fundamental categories of ECLAC thinking: the economic integration of Latin America and the Caribbean. It suggests a different approach to Latin American integration, taking into account past experiences and current circumstances within and outside the region. In accordance with this view, integration must become a political strategy for Latin Americans. This would mean involving the largest possible number of social actors in the task, especially the democratic political community, thereby strengthening the possibility of bringing their democratic principles to fruition. Hence integration would become a part of national aspirations and political movements.
