About this book

This book presents a new approach to studying the European Union’s regional and global relevance. It recasts into a dynamic perspective the three most significant systemic processes that define the EU as a regionalist project: its enlargement, neighborhood, and mega-regional policies. The book argues that these processes collectively demonstrate a dynamic shift of the core tenets of European regionalism from an inward-looking process of region building to an open, selective system of global interactions.

Reviews

“Using a multifaceted definition of regionalism, Professor Stefanova provides an illuminating presentation of the European Union’s role in the world, its impact, and lingering challenges facing the Union. Looking at the EU’s global interactions by examining its neighborhood policy, territorial expansion, and participation in global governance, and including issues from trade to aid, the reader is provided a broad and deep explanation of the EU’s external role.” (L. Johan Eliasson, Professor, East Stroudsburg University, USA and author of America’s Perceptions of Europe)

“This book provides a refreshing conversation about the evolving EU-style regionalism, particularly in a time when some national strategies question the viability of region-oriented policies. Based on the dimensions of enlargement, neighborhood, and global interactions, this new scholarly contribution by Professor Stefanova develops the concept of the ‘deterritorialization’ of EU regionalism and explains the challenges to the sustainability of the enlargement process, the order-creation effects of the EU model, and classical regionalism.” (Roberto Domínguez, Professor of International Relations, Suffolk University, USA)
