The Specific objectives of this seminar are:
• To provide an overview of the main conceptual debates about Euroscepticism within the field of EU Studies, International Relations and Political Science, distinguishing between the Anglophone and Francophone contributions. 
• To critically examine the typologies developed on the European Union case (both Anglophone and Francophone conceptualizations) and assess to what extent they can be generalized to regional integration in Latin America. 
• To identify the main political actors expressing resistances to regional integration (in Europe and Latin America) and to what extent the factors explaining such resistances are similar.
