 The first quarter of the 21st century has seen a dramatic shakeup of the global geopolitical chessboard. US hegemony is being replaced by a multipolarity where other powers – from both the Global North and some from the Global South (the BRICS group, primarily) – are competing, and sometimes collaborating. Given these circumstances, Issue 136 of Revista CIDOB d’Afers Internacionals presents an overview of Latin America’s position in the new scheme of things, and of its relations with certain key actors in this interconnected and interdependent global landscape. To that end, it spotlights the impact of global changes on regional dynamics and the capacity of the various countries of the region to respond to those changes, pointing to the processes underway.
