Civil Society Regionalism

  • Fredrik Söderbaum
Part of the International Political Economy Series book series (IPES)


A large number of studies in the research field deal with more or less all aspects of regionalism and all regions around the world, with the main and crucial exception of civil society regionalism (Söderbaum and Shaw, 2003). Judging from the limited amount of research on the topic, civil society regionalism appears to be absent, or at least insignificant. This ignorance is unfortunate, because, as this chapter will show, civil society is a dynamic force also on the regional level.
