PINO, Bruno Ayllón. Globa transformations, emerging potencies and the South-South Cooperations: challenges for the european cooperation. Cad. CRH [online]. 2012, vol.25, n.65, pp. 233-249. ISSN 0103-4979. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-49792012000200004.
The European Union (EU) and its Member States face the challenge of adapting its policy of cooperation for the development to a world stressed by swift changes in the creation and distribution of wealth and in the diffusion of power. The rise of the emerging countries, the peak of the South-South Cooperation (SSC), the advances in the fight against poverty in countries with an average income, or the traumatic impact of the crisis on the countries of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OCDE) are factors that give origin to major structural transformation and demand a modification of the sense and practice of European cooperation. The negotiation of financial perspectives for 2014-2020 and the renovation of the instruments of cooperation of the European Commission (CE) are a first answer to these changes. The major concerns demonstrated by SSC in some of the member states, as well as the initiatives of triangular cooperation triggered in countries like Brazil are a sign of search of horizontality and complementarity in the European cooperation with Latin-American countries.
