Summary
This book provides an alternative approach to regionalism in neglected parts of the world. Taking stock of several decades of conceptualization, the author provides a political sociology approach of regionalisms fed by recent contributions from the sociology of international relations and public policy analysis. It uses a methodological rather than theoretical framework to bring a new perspective on an emerging field of comparative regionalism. The relational dimensions, the social contexts and characteristics of actors and their practices are key to shed a new light on what is considered in this book as a ‘social international phenomenon’. Kevin Parthenay is Lecturer in Political Science at Sciences Po, France. Attached to the Centre for International Research and Studies (CERI) and to the Political Observatory for Latin American and the Caribbean (OPALC), his research focuses on comparative regionalism, Central American democracies and foreign policies.--, Provided by publisher
