We study Lascar strong types and Galois types and especially their relation to notions of type which have finite character. We define a notion of a strong type with finite character, the so-called Lascar type. We show that this notion is stronger than Galois type over countable sets in simple and superstable finitary AECs. Furthermore, we give an example where the Galois type itself does not have finite character in such a class.
