Taking the answers of over fifty Latin American scholars to a survey as its foundation, this paper analyses the features of the global and Latin American context and presents some of the potential areas for its development over the coming decade. To do this, the number of poles in the system is considered along with the patterns of cooperation and competition that predominate in the relations between countries. In addition, an analysis is made of how different countries define a “region” in their foreign policy, and the reasons behind Brazil losing its leadership position and Mexico’s potential role in the region are set out.
