CALVENTO, Mariana  and  ROLANDI, María Lis. Reconfiguration of South-South Cooperation in the Latin American Region and the International Participation of Subnational Actors. Rev. mex. cienc. polít. soc [online]. 2015, vol.60, n.224, pp.315-348. ISSN 0185-1918.

This article describes and analyzes the current characteristics of South-South cooperation in Latin America, particularly the role subnational actor's play in its dynamics. It also examines the modalities this cooperation adopts within the regional political context of the last decade, which evinces an important progress regarding regional integration of Latin American countries. Finally, it looks at the relationship between the principles of South-South cooperation and the international participation of subnational actors, from the perspective of the relevance acquired by some of these forms of cooperation, as in the cases of the Red MERCOSCIUDADES (MERCO CITIES NETWORK), the Foro Consultivo de Municipios, Estados Federados, Provincias y Departamentos del MERCOSUR (FCCR MERCOSUR / Consultative Forum of MERCOSUR Municipalities, Federated States, Provinces, and Departments (FCCR) and the Federación Latinoamericana de Ciudades, Municipios y Asociaciones de Gobiernos Locales (FLACMA /LATIN AMERICAN FEDERATION OF CITIES, MUNICIPALITIES AND LOCAL GOVENMENT ASSOCIATIONS), all of which promote institutional mechanisms which favor the action of these cities through different exchange and cooperation tools.

Keywords : South-South cooperation; Latin America; subnational actors; cities' networks; MERCO CITIES; MERCOSUR; FLACMA.
