QUISPE-REMON, Florabel. PROBLEMS AND PROSPECTS OF INTEGRATION PROCESSES IN LATIN AMERICA. Int. Law: Rev. Colomb. Derecho Int. [online]. 2010, n.16, pp. 259-291. ISSN 1692-8156.
After nearly sixty years of integration efforts in Latin America, progress is still modest in comparison to what happened in Europe. The particularity of the region is that there is a strong group, and with a leader who is aiming to achieve an integrated, full, and effective. By contrast, over time many groups have emerged subregional, inter alia, the Andean Community of Nations, comprising Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru, and MERCOSUR, which has among its members Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay (and Venezuela). This prevents the consolidation of a strong integration group as each has different interests. Moreover, the past of the members countries has a substantive influence.
