The Crisis Observatory of ELIAMEP participated in the bi-regional research programme Jean Monnet Network “CRISUELA – Crisis-Equity-Democracy for Europe and Latin America”. The aim was the comparative study of crisis and crisis management as well as its social and democratic implications, in Europe and Latin America. This process allowed an exchange of information and experiences between Europe and Latin America, but also the opening of a bi-regional dialogue on the social and macroeconomic policies and crisis management, providing additional content to the Strategic Alliance  the Summits EU-CELAC are supposed to build.

The programme was coordinated by IRELAC with the participation of:

  • Institute of International Relations of the University of Sao Paulo (IRI-USP) (Brazil)
  • Hellenic Foundation for European and Foreign Policy (ELIAMEP)
  • Istituto Affari Internazionali (Italy)
  • Academic Researcher: Stephan Schulmeister (Austria)
  • IRELAC (Belgium)

The duration of the project was three years (September 2016-August 2019).

The programme was co-funded by the European Union through the Erasmus+ programme.
