Fringe Regionalism

When Peripheries Become Regions

Authors: Mattheis, Frank, Raineri, Luca, Russo, Alessandra

  • Challenges the dominant bias in the study of regionalism to privilege formal intergovernmental organisations
  • Analyses how regions are produced from borderlands and peripheries through transnational delineations, practices, economies and identities
  • Approaches regionalism in a transdisciplinary perspective by drawing on border studies, political geography, studies of informality, the recent scholarship on the “practical turn” in international relations and transnational politics

About this book

This book introduces the novel concept of fringe regionalism to the field of international studies. It examines how regions are practiced by peripheral borderlands rather than centrally planned, thus offering new avenues for researching regionalism beyond the conventional focus on formal intergovernmental organisations. Two in depth case studies, the Sahara and the Caucasus, provide the real-life application of the concept and the authors use the tensions between competing demarcations of the region, the regional nature of extra-legal economies and the narratives of cross-border identities to steer their empirical approach. Through thorough analysis, the volume applies the concept of fringe regionalism to regions previously neglected by conventional approaches.
