Intersecting InterregionalismThe European Union and the Contradictions of Complex Interregionalism

Intersecting Interregionalism: The European Union and the Contradictions of Complex Interregionalism [This chapter focuses on the evolution of EU interregional strategy through the lens of the concept of ‘complex interregionalism’, the changing interlinkages of bilateral, interregional and transregional relations that the EU has around the globe. Complex interregionalism offers an analytical tool to understand the significant changes in EU interregional policy over the last few years. In addition to this, the chapter addresses the key institutional drivers of EU complex interregionalism (the Commission, the Council, the member states and more recently the European Parliament) and analyses the implications of their differing interests in interregionalism. Finally, the chapter offers a first evaluation of the implications of the Treaty of Lisbon for EU interregionalism, notably through the creation of the European External Action Service and the increased powers of the European Parliament, before ending with some conclusions for the future of EU complex interregionalism.] http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png

Abstract

[This chapter focuses on the evolution of EU interregional strategy through the lens of the concept of ‘complex interregionalism’, the changing interlinkages of bilateral, interregional and transregional relations that the EU has around the globe. Complex interregionalism offers an analytical tool to understand the significant changes in EU interregional policy over the last few years. In addition to this, the chapter addresses the key institutional drivers of EU complex interregionalism (the Commission, the Council, the member states and more recently the European Parliament) and analyses the implications of their differing interests in interregionalism. Finally, the chapter offers a first evaluation of the implications of the Treaty of Lisbon for EU interregionalism, notably through the creation of the European External Action Service and the increased powers of the European Parliament, before ending with some conclusions for the future of EU complex interregionalism.]
