Learning from Europe. Lessons for Asian Pacific regionalism?

    Research output: Journal PublicationsJournal Article (refereed)

    Abstract

    The European Union has advanced further down the road of regionalism and economic integration than the Asian Pacific region, which has begun to develop new forms of regional identity. This paper broadly compares and contrasts European and Asian perceptions and practices of regionalism, arguing that while both regions share some common goals, there are in fact important differences in evolution, format and kind which differentiate the two experiences. In addition, the paper examines some of the key characteristics and issues faced by the Europeans in their regionalist experiment, such as institutionalisation, leadership, economic challenges and popular support, and examines the extent to which they might be relevant to what is happening in the Asian Pacific region.
