Regionalism Globalisation and International Offer by Jens-Uwe Wunderlich pdf free download. Regional cooperation has become an increasingly important phenomenon in international relations during the last sixty years. While it is globalisation that continues to captivate politicians, the business community, academics and the general public alike, the contemporary period could just as easily be described as the ‘era of regionalism’.

Since the end of the 1980s, the world has witnessed a new interest in and a resurgence of regional integration. The revival of European
integration with the Single European Act seems to have generated a momentum not confined to Europe alone. The North American Free Agreement (NAFTA) was created, followed by Mercosur (Comisión Sectorial para el Mercado Común del Sur) in Latin America in 1991 and the Southern African Development Community (SADC) in Africa.

In the Asia-Pacific region, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) became much more assertive in the 1990s and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Forum (APEC) was set up. However, regionalism is hardly a post-Cold War phenomenon. Indeed, it is
possible to discern two big waves of regionalism. The first wave peaked between the late 1940s and the 1960s, and was dominated by the European experience. Several factors converged to make Western Europe a particularly fertile field for new modes of international cooperation to take a hold.

These included exhaustion from the war, US hegemony and its role in the reconstruction of Western Europe, Cold War politics, regional security interdependencies, and a general questioning of the role of sovereignty and the state within Europe. There were attempts at region-building outside Europe as well, though these were far less successful. ASEAN, founded in 1967, remains perhaps the most notable exception here. It was all these empirical developments together that created an entirely new focus in international relations
theory – the study of regional cooperation and regionalism.
