Título: Toward International Cooperation in Education for the Integration of the Americas

Cooperation as Collaboration within Latin America

The development period also stimulated various efforts at collaboration among the countries of Latin America. During this period the countries of Central America committed themselves to the development of a common economic market, and joint planning of their universities (Consejo Superior Universitario Centroamericano, 1988). Manpower planning was used to determine demand for high level human resources in the region, and assessments were made of the installed capacity of each of the national university systems. The objective was to eliminate duplication of effort and to concentrate resources, especially in high cost programs such as physical sciences and medicine. Although the Central American common market generated some benefits, political conflicts between the countries led to suspension of the agreements. Similar economic ventures such as the Latin American Free Trade Agreement, and the Andean Pact, were slower in achieving the level of implementation realized in Central America. A small number of universities joined together in an effort to share high cost instruction through the use of satellites. The Andres Bello program developed as an effort to link countries together at the cultural level, but low levels of funding have limited its impact.
