Example text

Other questions addressed in the contributions to the volume may be summarized as follows: • • • What global and intraregional factors gave rise to the emergence of inter- and transregional forums? What catalysts are supporting the formation of inter- and transregional forums? What barriers are blocking their evolution? Do inter- and transregional forums differ in terms of intensity of interaction? What are the reasons for variations in the intensity of interactions? How do regional organizations interact?

Is there variance according to the type of interregionalism? To what extent are interregional relations contributing to a system of global governance that transcends the “loose set of cross-national policy patchworks” (Reinecke 1998: 10) by avoiding overlapping arrangements, developing a global division of labor and creating nodal points in a multilevel system of international relations? Are there differences between inter- and transregional relations outside the Triad and those within the Triad in terms of structure, functions, intensity of interaction and performance?

This is why some observers called “open regionalism” an “anti-regionalism” (Arndt 1993). The management of interdependence and the polarization by regional balance of power lead to the creation of flexible interregional structures of cooperation. Transnational actors are involved in these structures to balance the shift of power from states to markets (Strange 1996). To further elucidate the relation between globalization and regionalization, and between regionalism and interregionalism, I will subsequently present six theses and illustrate them with empirical evidence from interregionalism in the Triad.
