Investigates the important contribution made to democratic political culture in the Latin American countries by the activities of Party Internationals, all of which are represented in the European Parliament. It examines the concepts of democracy espoused by the PIs, and the reasons for the intensity of their interest in promoting good relations between Europe and Latin America. It then discusses the institutional structure of the PIs, and their channels of influence, both of parties in government and in opposition, in Spain, France, Germany, and the European Parliament.
