Upcoming Event: “Argentina – on the brink of major change?”

About the event
Over the past years, traditionally strong and prosperous EU-Argentina relations have encountered several stumbling stones. Trade disputes and the growingly tense political situation in Argentina are provoking increasing tensions. ArgentinaArgentinian President Cristina Kirchner, who has clearly chosen a conflictive discourse towards the EU, is being increasingly criticized both in Argentina and abroad.

Also in Argentina tensions are on the rise. After prosecutor Alberto Nisman’s unclarified death, mass protests took place in Buenos Aires and across the country.

Partners of the Friedrich Naumann Foundation in Argentina, working in the field of public policy and election observation will be travelling to Brussels after an audience with the Pope in honour of their work in the field of democracy support and election observation. Besides presenting their work, they will give an assessment of the current political situation in Argentina.
