Book
National Perspectives on the New Regionalism in the North

This is the second of five volumes reporting on the UNU/WIDER project on New Regionalism. Whereas the first volume dealt with the two processes of globalization and regionalization in more general terms, this volume presents various national perspectives on the process of regionalization for a more concrete understanding of its dynamics. Divided between the two categories of policy-makers and policy-takers, the volume is dedicated to country studies from Europe and North America.
