Sammanfattning (abstract):
Interregionalism is deeply rooted in the foreign policies and external relations of the EU. Interregional cooperation today not only encompasses trade and aid but also political dialogue, cultural relations and even security cooperation. This chapter shows that the diversity and change in EU interregionalism require us to shift focus away from the conventional concern with formal relationships between two regional organizations (‘pure interregionalism’) to more complex, hybrid and multi-actor forms of interregional interactions, which helps us to understand the close links between regions and varities of interregionalism. Progress in the field require that we go beyond the current EU-centricity dominating the field. Increasing the comparative element will help us to develop more general theoretical understandings of interregionalism while still understanding what is specific to the EU. The chapter also underlines the need to go beyond the current idealism dominating the field and also improve our understanding of the asymmetric relationships that often characterise interregional relations involving the EU.
