Theorizing the New Regionalism Approach
- 54 Downloads
The point of departure for theory-building in this study is that the reflectivist approaches to regionalism constitute a theoretical foundation. But, in my view, there are still gaps in the explanation and understanding of the political economy of regionalism, how regions are socially constructed, what actors and coalitions of actors are ‘pushing’ the processes, with what visions and strategies, and who are the winners and losers. These limitations arise, at least to some extent, as a consequence of how the new regionalism is studied, theorized and conceptualized.
