The Author and / or AUTHORS



Latin America and the Caribbean is a region that has shown willingness to integrate throughout its history. Although so far the greatest progress has been made at the subregional level, the recent creation of The Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC), in late 2011, seems to show a different trend. This new attempt becomes the only integration involving thirty-three states in the region, excluding the United States and Canada, in the context of so-called post-liberal regionalism, and seeks to become a space for defining joint positions from the region to the world. Although it is too early to determine the future of this bet with high political significance, recent events give positive signals; some others seem to suggest that it may become another mechanism overloaded with sectoral agendas. In this scenario, one wonders how far the CELAC can operate as a facilitator or "organizer" of the international regional cooperation in Latin America and the Caribbean, from the premises of its formation and the actions taken so far by the Community.
