About this book


Focusing on the EU and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, this book demonstrates how collective identity depends on the construction of outsider states, such as Morocco, Turkey, and Australia, as different. It then analyzes how these regional organizations can consequently aggravate conflicts involving outsider states.
