Summary
  • Investigates the intimate relationship between regional governance processes and global crises. Analysing the current turmoil in the European Union, it also looks at regional cooperation and integration in the Arab world, Africa, Asia and Latin America through topical case studies.
  • 'An essential reading for anyone interested in a deeper understanding of how crises affect regionalism throughout the world, with a particular emphasis on the long-term implications of the current European crisis.' - Amitav Acharya, American University, Washington, DC, USA, and UNESCO Chair in Transnational Challenges and Governance 'Crises have been part of the process of supra-national regional integration - starting with the one in Europe. Will the contemporary economic-financial crisis prove to be 'good' or 'bad' for the regionalisms of the world? Will crises compel regions to adapt by increasing or decreasing their mutual commitments? This book is a path-breaking effort to answer these crucial questions with regard to Europe, Africa, South America and East Asia.' - Philippe C. Schmitter, European University Institute, Florence, Italy and Central European University, Budapest, Hungary 'Like no one else before, this outstanding book brings together two of the most important traits of the 21st century: crises and regionalism. Moreover it manages to bridge the unfortunate divide between European integration studies and comparative regionalism. Simply a 'mustread' for anyone who wants to understand contemporary world affairs.' - Fredrik Soderbaum, School of Global Studies, University of Gothenburg, Sweden 'This book provides an innovative perspective on regional integration and shows how crises can open up new spaces for action. It provides invaluable insights on the future of Europe and for students of regionalism across the globe.' - Martin Holland, National Centre for Research on Europe, University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand

Summary expansion
Will the European Union survive the global economic crisis? Will the Arab Spring trigger new forms of regional cooperation in North Africa? Will Asian regionalism prevail? This volume investigates the intimate relationship between regional governance processes and global crises. Starting with a thorough analysis of the so-called Eurocrisis and its impact on the European Union, the contributors look at how regional cooperation and integration in the Arab world, Africa, Asia and Latin America have been improved or challenged by local and global crises. Through a selection of topical studies dealing with economic, humanitarian and democratic crises, they discuss the future evolutions of regional governance and call for a new paradigm to put 'citizens' at the centre of regionalism
