A Political Sociology to Compare Regionalisms: The Analytical Framework

  • Kevin Parthenay
Chapter

Abstract

While considering regionalism as a political and social international phenomenon, several avenues for research are being explored: the relational dimension (interactions), the social characteristics and collective beliefs of agents, and their practices. To achieve that purpose, regional organizations are understood as places where the emergence of a regional political space can be examined, along with a multiplicity of actors and complex configurations of interactions.
