Abstract and Keywords
This article seeks to identify the scope of, limits on, and potential for international migration in its various forms to become a component of interstate regionalism. The analysis is presented in five sections. The first section defines interstate regionalism and explores the place of regional organizations in the institutional architecture of world politics after World War II. The second section presents an overview of the economic effects of regionalism. The third explores the renewed interest in regionalism after the end of the Cold War. The fourth section provides an overview of extant regional organizations. The fifth analyzes European integration, with the question posed of whether regionalism in Europe is an exception rather than a model. The conclusion highlights the challenges posed by existing forms of regional organization and identifies some directions for future enquiry.
