Bibliographical note

This chapter explores how the European crisis can create opportunities for a more democratic relationship with the Global South. It focuses on the pedagogical dimension of European-Latin American relations and seeks to three dimensions of changes in Europe: precarization of labour, transnational debt discipline and cultural hybridization. The pedagogical relationship between the two continents gained new nuances when at least some Europeans became eager to learn from Latin America. European social movements had been inspired by Latin America and the Global South also in earlier periods. The new momentum for learning from Latin America has focused both on understanding what happens in Europe and also on what kinds of examples from Latin America could be put into practice in Europe. Most theories of development have traditionally assumed that in the relationship between places like Europe and Latin America, it is mostly the Latin Americans who might see glimpses of their possible futures when looking into Europe.
