The European Union and Latin America and the Caribbean face an adverse scenario as a consequence of the globalisation crisis, growing geopolitical competition, of which the war in Ukraine is an expression, and the materialisation of global risks such as the COVID-19 pandemic. These elements call for a new rationality and mobilising narrative for the relaunching of relations and cooperation between the two regions. This article proposes three elements: the revitalisation of democracy, the search for greater strategic autonomy, and a transformative recovery that implies a ‘triple transition’: social, productive and digital, and ecological. It argues that these three elements, of which the European Green Pact is an example, can give new impetus to bi-regional relations and the EU-LAC ‘strategic partnership’. 

Keywords: European Union; Latin America; Green Deal; social contract; international relations.
