Description

Is the EU isolated within the emergent multipolar world? Concentrating on interregional relations and focussing on the European Union’s (EU) evolving international role with regards to regional cooperation, this innovative book collects a set of fresh empirical analyses of interregional ties binding the EU with its Eastern and Southern neighbourhood, as well as with Asia, Africa and the Americas. The 25 leading authors from 5 continents have contributed original and diverse chapters and the book advances a novel theoretical ‘post-revisionist’ approach beyond both the Eurocentrism of ‘Europe First’ perspectives as well as the Euroscepticism of those advocating to simply move ’Beyond Europe’. After a Foreword by A. Acharya, the book’s five sections reflect the main drivers of EU interregional policies: The European Union as a Sophisticated Laboratory of Regional and Interregional Cooperation (with chapters by M. Telò, L. Fawcett and T. Risse), De Facto Drivers of Regionalism (F. Ponjaert, M. Shu, A. Valladão and C. Jakobeit), De Jure Drivers of Regionalism (S. Lavenex, G. Finizio, C. Jakobeit, R. Coman, C. Cocq & S. Teo L-Shah), Cognitive Drivers of Regionalism (J. Rüland, E. Fitriani, S. Stavridis & S. Kingah, P. Bacon), and Instrumental Drivers of Regionalism (B. Delcourt, C. Olsson & G. Müller, A. Malamud & P. Seabra and L. Fioramonti & J. Kostopoulos).

Reviews

'This excellent book, focusing on agreements between the EU and its partners, provides a theoretically and empirically rich analysis of different forms of interregionalism. By systematically building on previous research in this area, it provides insights that will stimulate both academic and policy debate.' Vinod K. Aggarwal, University of California, Berkeley, USA.

'Breaking with traditional approaches, this book analyses the EU as a laboratory of experiments in regional and interregional cooperation. It is a major new contribution to regionalism studies and will be essential reading both for its fresh insights and the quality of its contributors.' Andrew Gamble, University of Sheffield, UK

About the Series

Globalisation, Europe, Multilateralism series

Globalisation, Europe, Multilateralism series

Established and edited by Professor Mario Teló (ULB & LUISS) and Frederik Ponjaert (ULB & Waseda), the Institut d’Études Européennes at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (IEE-ULB) sponsored GEM Series published by Routledge brings together original peer-reviewed publications on: "Globalisation, Europe, and Multilateralism"

Each volume included in the series delves into a given dynamic shaping either the global-regional nexus or the role of the EU therein. Accordingly, the resulting international and interdisciplinary publications offer original insights into: globalisation and its associated governance challenges; the changing forms of multilateral cooperation and the role of transnational networks; the impact of new global powers and the corollary multipolar order; the lessons born from comparative regionalism and interregional partnerships; as well as the distinctive instruments the EU mobilises in its foreign policies and external relations.

The GEM Series’ edited volumes, monographs and textbooks all aim at contributing to further innovation in the fields of European Integration and International Studies. An International Advisory Board with leading scholars from across all five continents further supports the series with input and guidance.

Proposals for, and any contact about, the series in the first instance should be addressed to:
