This project aims to increase the understanding of contemporary forms of comparative regionalism. Faced with a large variety of integration mechanisms on other continents, scholars have grappled with the challenge of analysing whether and how the EU relates to these processes. This project has as its key objective to advance current debates on the topic of comparative regionalism. By bringing together leading scholars in the field from different continents and perspectives, this project will enrich the existing literature. This project is coordinated by the College of Europe and the United Nations University Institute for Comparative Regional Integration Studies (UNU-CRIS). This project is funded by the Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Commission (DG Education and Culture, Jean Monnet).
