New book edited by Emmanuel Fanta, Timothy M. Shaw and Vanessa T. Tang!

Comparative Regionalisms for Development in the 21st Century. Insights from the Global South Edited by Emmanuel Fanta, Université Libre de Bruxelles, Belgium, Timothy M. Shaw, University of Massachusetts, Boston, USA and Vanessa T. Tang, University of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

‘This volume significantly enhances our understanding of comparative regionalism and is especially invaluable for those looking for authentic and empirically rich “insights from the South” – a rarity in writings on international relations generally and regional integration particularly.’ – Amitav Acharya, American University, Washington DC, USA

‘A sensible, informative and thought-provoking collection emphasizing the importance of regionalism in Africa and beyond. Human capital development, technological innovation and good governance are critical for the long-term economic success of the Global South.’ – Zolani Dyosi, National Research Foundation Technology and Human Resources and Industry Programme, South Africa

This responding volume has four interrelated topics. It explores the transformation taking place in/with regard to the financing of development in the Global South and the apparition of new players in the field. The emergence of ‘New Regionalisms’ in the South and the usefulness of these experiences for comparative studies of regional relationship is explicated. It turns its attention to new forms of transnational governance that are emerging and the role that a novelty of actors play in this ‘new multilateralism’. Finally, it looks into the implications of this trio of novel directions and players for analyses and policies.
