The European Union and global governance / Mario Telò
Nação e Defesa, Lisboa, n.147 (2017), p.130-159


The outcomes of recent investigations allow the European Union and global governance research agenda to revive as a more autonomous field. The alternative scenarios and research agendas - on the one hand, hyper globalism and, on the other, nationalism/protectionism and fragmentation - are relevant tendencies and challenges, but they don’t look as apodictic winning alternatives to regionalism. It is argued that among the possible three scenario for the future of regionalism and interregionalism (neo-mercantilist regionalism, open regionalism and a mix of both), the most virtuous is a peaceful combination of competition and neo-multilateral cooperation, by way of regional forms of mediation between alternative ways of understanding and implementing international and transnational cooperation.
