Haastrup, Toni and Eun, Yong-Soo, eds. (2014) Regionalising Global Crises: The Financial Crisis and New Frontiers in Regional Governance. Palgrave Macmillan, UK, 208 pp. ISBN 978-1-137-34756-5. E-ISBN 978-1-137-34757-2. (doi:10.1057/9781137347572) (KAR id:43046)


How are global crises, such as the current financial crisis, responded and dealt with? What are the consequences? Are there any links between regionalism and global crises in terms of stimuli, processes, and consequences? This edited volume brings together a range of examples to illustrate the development and importance of regional actors in the global governance of the political economy.

Regionalising Global Crises highlights the regional level dynamics that exacerbate or contribute to solving the global economic crisis. It also explores the potential for change in the governance of the global political economy and international financial architecture by assessing the current and past financial crises through regional lenses. In particular, it addresses the debates that have emerged on the roles of regions and regional actors by undertaking empirical investigation of the impact of the crises on Africa, Europe, BRICS, and East Asia and their reactions to those events. As such it will provide an important empirical and methodological resource for students, researchers and practitioners with an interest in regional actors, comparative regionalism and international political economy.
