Asia Meets Europe: Inter-regionalism and the Asia-Europe Meeting
This text raises questions about the nature of regions and, in particular, about the role of inter-regionalism in a rapidly changing environment. Gilson considers the correlation between Asia and Europe within the framework of the post Cold War inter-regional Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM). T he author then examines the nature of this type of interaction and its various economic and political forms by examining the historical precedents and prevailing ideas of region that shape and distort it. The book also encompasses the challenging roles of private enterprise and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) when faced with state actors who continue to regard regional and inter-regional co-operation with ambivalence. This text should be of interest to academics and researchers of Asian studies, Asia-Europe relations and international political economy. Practitioners involved in policy making in East Asia and Europe may also find it useful.
