Latin America has been one of the most troubled regions on the planet. It has been hit by drug trafficking, insecurity and corruption. Likewise, today it presents serious dangers for the stability of the region, with the presence of the Cuban dictatorship, which has financed and organized movements of the extreme left in several countries and has managed to destabilize governments. There are those who say that the region is like a ship adrift and that it has cost a lot to achieve small advances in governance and social development. However, it is necessary to understand the current situation in Latin America and the new social conflicts that threaten the virtual stability of the region. It is also essential to be able to support, from the European experience, a new concept of democracy and human development.

There are small pending accounts, which are of vital importance to understand in order to have a broader vision of the modern threats that Latin America faces. Cuba is one of the last socialist states, the last in the western world, which had its heyday during the 20th century. For this reason, and because of its intense history, this small country unleashes great passions, endless discussions and strong ideological positions for and against. Cuba is the last western country where the economic system known as real socialism is maintained. This is a system that we can hardly see as a step towards communism. Rather as a system in itself, different from the prevailing social or liberal capitalism, based on almost total planning of the economy and state control of the means of production, which during the 20th century was called “state socialism”. . Another example of this is Venezuela and Nicaragua, which are today two of the states where there are no guarantees of political participation and the rule of law has deteriorated to such an extent that they are considered as -Latin American dictatorships-

Similarly, in Europe, the new political pressure groups in support of the totalitarian regimes that have emerged, for this reason there is an almost total ignorance of the Latin American reality in European society. Today, European society and the governments of these countries do not have a clear perception of the reality of nations such as Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua.

The current political, social and political situation in Cuba needs a new approach to translate the structural elements and the demands that the social forces within the island are making public into a need for development for a more plural and more participatory Cuba. The current Cuban context, which has resulted in civil society encompassing initiatives such as LGBT rights As public policies for the protection of animals as a comprehensive  law for the protection of women, in that sense, it is necessary to create a Dialogue and Action platform, for the exchange of experiences with other nations in the international context. such as the need to seek support. Approach that extends to the entire American region.
