that Martinique itself witnessed revolts and rebellions just before, during and just after the Haitian Revolution (Geggus 1996 ). The whole of the Caribbean was in ferment, of course. It is, then, somewhat alarming to find that Fanon effectively quarantines the Haitian Revolution to the realms of colonial unbelief, where Hegel himself had consigned it. In its

with each other in the Atlantic Ocean and around the Caribbean. Legal philosophies armed imperial states with novel world visions of oceanic sovereignty, such as Hugo Grotius’s Mare Liberum and the principles of suzerainty underpinning the Treaty of Tordesillas. With respect to Africa, Asia and the Middle East, European colonialism remained mainly commercial until the nineteenth century. Importantly, Europe’s empires asserted the right to sovereignty in the Indian Ocean, principally against their European rivals. The claims could not be effective immediately but they

America. This is demonstrated in the following quotation: the EP ‘Invites the Community to stimulate the efforts of regional integration and congratulate the creation of the Latin American Economic System (SELA) the 18th of October of 1975 with the purpose of creating economic and commercial cooperation among Latin-American and Caribbean countries’ (EP 1976). Nevertheless, integration in Latin America seems to have been a significant issue for the EU. As mentioned, the EU’s lack of involvement in the region had been justified by the lack of appropriate intermediaries on

However, with the support of the US and Canada, Paraguay managed to remain a part of the Organization of American States, even though Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, Venezuela, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Cuba and Nicaragua did not agree (MercoPress 26/1/2013). According to the head of the Paraguayan delegation to the Parliament of Mercosur, the suspension from so many forums was orchestrated, with Argentina, Brazil and Venezuela masterminding the plot to limit Paraguay’s influence

on immigration to receive migrants from Asian and Pacific states and the Caribbean and Latin America. Labour and refugee migrations make up much of the rest of Hoerder’s picture as it emerged before the end of the millennium. If modern colonialism propelled experiences of migration, so also did pilgrimage. The first-​millennium expansion of the world religions laid down many of the paths of pilgrimage (Therborn, 2011:  37–​42). The practice of leaving a home community in response to a spiritual calling, with the expectation of returning, travelling often great

The first concerns the critique of modernity implied by perspectives on the “coloniality of power” and “decolonial knowledge.” The second involves recent work on Latin America and the Caribbean that has provided fresh meanings to discussions of the magic/insanity of capitalism and colonialism

and Italy, Mosley’s internment and the later revelations of Nazi bestiality finally demolished it. After the war and a spell in prison, Mosley tried to revive his political fortunes by launching the Union Movement, which aimed at a united Europe and the expulsion of Afro-Caribbean and other immigrants. This achieved very little and Mosley became wholly marginalised. Fascism in Britain seemed extinct

, Portugal and the US. After this outline of how these have influenced politics in South America, the next section will focus on a discussion of Mercosur’s institutions. This will enable us to see not only how Mercosur institutions have evolved but also the way in which their evolution has been affected by their dialogue with the EU. Introduction 11 The shadow of Spain and Portugal over Latin America Relations between these two regions date from the late fifteenth century, when Christopher Columbus arrived in the Caribbean region on 12 October 1492. He first arrived at
