Regionalism and Regionalisation
Regionalism and regionalisation are the terms used to describe, respectively, the political project of building a community of states, and the regional expression of global processes of integration and changing structures of production and power in a given geographic area. Historically, these processes have exercised enormous influence over the strategies adopted by developing countries to extricate themselves from their relative weakness in the international trade, political and production system and from the cycle of poverty that formed their post-colonial inheritance. This chapter will focus on both these processes.
