While China is now a major player in Latin America and there exists a growing number of academic publications on Chinese-Latin American relations, we know much less about India’s engagement and interests in Latin America. While in other regions (Africa and parts of Asia) there is competition between China and India, this does not seem to be the case (yet?) in Latin America. In the workshop/seminar we will analyze the economic and strategic interests of China and India in Latin America. Are there differences between the Chinese and the Indian modes of interaction with Latin America? What are the interests of Latin American countries with regard to both Asian giants? Are there differences in Latin American countries’ approaches to China and India, and can we identify different patterns of cooperation among them? What are the future prospects (for the next 10 to 20 years) for cooperation between Latin America and both Asian countries? Will there be competition between India and Latin America? What are the repercussions for relations with other partners of Latin America (the US, Europe)? With regard to India and China, Brazil has a special status in Latin America because it cooperates with India in the IBSA forum and with China and India in the BRICS. How does this cooperation affect the relations between the three countries?
