Resumen

ALDA MEJIAS, Sonia. The challenges of Latin America to project as a regional actor in the field of international security. rev.relac.int.estrateg.segur. [online]. 2018, vol.13, n.1, pp.35-66. ISSN 1909-3063.  http://dx.doi.org/10.18359/ries.2961.

This paper contemplates the possibility of Latin America to project itself as a regional actor in the field of international security. To achieve this objective, we have used a qualitative methodology to refer the following requirements: the subregional or regional integration process and the developing international multilateral cooperation in the field of security and defense, the participation of the Latin American countries in the international peace missions. In the evaluation of each of the products, the conception of a sovereignist perspective, by the nations of the region, is evident. Hence, in spite of the obvious progress achieved, this factor is a major obstacle to integration and multilateral cooperation processes and, consequently, to the projection of the region as a regional actor in the field of security and defense. However, considering the importance of effectively combating transnational organized crime, it would be crucial for Latin America to become a regional actor, through the elements mentioned, since it is the most effective way to combat this threat.

Palabras clave : Cooperation; organized crime; integration; international security.
