Part of the International Political Economy Series book series (IPES)


This concluding chapter extends and assesses the critical theoretical and methodological discussion taken up in the introduction, in light of the collective works presented by the authors of this collection. Accordingly, the quest for this collective edition has focused on how a South American IPE and regionalism may attempt to account for the orientations of national and regional development in a time of uncertainty about the conflictive change of the post-1945 liberal world order.
