The fourth Summit between the Heads of State and Government of Latin America, the Caribbean (LAC) and the European Union (EU) takes place in Vienna, from 10-13 May 2006. Parallel to the official Summit, and under the theme of “Linking Alternatives 2”, social movements, non-governmental organisations and other civil society organisations from both regions will organise an encounter of alternatives, built around five key themes: the effects of neo-liberal globalisation; EU-LAC development co-operation; militarisation and human rights; EU-LA political dialogue; and alternative regional integration strategies.
