Castro, Rafael, and Tobias Lenz. 2019. The Lima Summit: A Trial by Fire for the Pacific Alliance. GIGA Focus Latin America, No. 4 (July).
On 5 and 6 July 2019, the four member states of the Pacific Alliance (PA) will meet in Lima, Peru, for the XIV Presidential Summit. With the rapidly changing both Latin American and international context, the meeting might well be the most important one since the group’s creation in 2011. The convergence with the Southern Common Market (MERCOSUR), the accession of associate members, and enhanced cooperation with observer states are among the main topics on the agenda.
