RT14 - The rhythms of South-South cooperation in the development of a fragmented world

Convened by Giuseppe Lo Brutto, Eduardo Crivelli and Ada Celsa Cabrera García (Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla, Mexico)

In the 21st century, the traditional regime of international cooperation for development seems to be paralyzed in the face of the advancement and geopolitical and geoeconomic repositioning of many countries of the global South. This situation can be interpreted as the correlate of the refocusing of the capitalist world economy in East Asia, in a context in which the traditional regime of international cooperation outlined by the world hegemony of the United States hints at competition with another regime of South-South cooperation with China as leader. The objective of the panel is to discuss the progress and setbacks of South-South cooperation that sets the pace of development in a context of fragmentation and reconfiguration of the global political economy.
