Three trends have dominated the political economy of integration during the last two decades: globalization, economic nationalism, and regionalization. This book explores comparative regional integration, focusing on both intra regional integration and relations among regions in the context of power.
The most common focus of integration studies has been on the logic of cooperation, but there is another logic of integration: power. The relevance of power today is represented by the relations within the Eurozone, especially between creditors and debtors. By the same line of reasoning, integration in Asia cannot ignore the respective roles of China, Japan, and Korea, nor the unresolved disputes about Taiwan, Hong Kong, and the islands in the South China Sea. This edited volume addresses the role of power in regional integration in three contexts: (1) the role of hegemonic external actors (the US and China) in regional integration; (2) the role of core states within regions (Germany, China , Japan, and Brazil); and (3) the role of noncore states- smaller and middle range powers (Italy and Greece in Europe; South Korea and Malaysia in Asia; and Argentina, Colombia, Uruguay, and Paraguay in Latin America).
This book will benefit students and scholars of international relations and comparative political economy, especially those with an interest in integration studies and comparative regionalism.
이 책은 지역(region)내의 통합(integration)뿐만 아니라 지역(regions)간의 관계를 힘(power)의 맥락에서 분석한 비교지역주의(comparative regionalism)에 관한 연구이다.
각 챕터들은 지역통합(regional integration)에 있어서 힘(power)의 역할을 다음과 같은 3가지 측면에서 고찰한다.
(1) 지역통합에 있어서 '헤게모니적 외부행위자들'(hegemonic external powers 즉, 미국과 중국)의 역할
(2) 각 지역내에서 '핵심적인 국가들'(core states 즉, 독일, 중국, 일본, 브라질) 의 역할
(3) 각 지역내의 '비핵심적인 국가들'(non-core states 즉, 유럽의 이탈리아와 그리스, 아시아의 한국과 말레이시아, 그리고 라틴아메리카의 아르헨티나, 콜롬비아, 우루과이, 파라과이)의 역할
국제관계나 비교정치경제, 그중에서도 특히 지역통합이나 비교지역주의를 연구하는 학자들과 학생들에게 이 책은 특히 유용할 것이다.
