Опис курсу

  1. Course objectives:   The main task of course is to present regionalism as a phenomenon of international relations and how regionalism should be studied and compared.  The course offers a comprehensive yet general approach for thinking about regions and regionalism .The notion of regionalism is viewed in four interacting perspectives : historical , spatial  ,comparative   and global. Regions are considered as territorial or non-territorial units or subsystem lager than the “state” but smaller than the “global” system. In the course will be presented the definitions, notions and categories of Regional Studies. The course will makes it clear that regionalism and regions have moved into centre place in international theory


The following tasks of the course are:

  • to traces the origins and evolution of regionalism as an object and as a field of study
  • to identify four main phases : early regionalism , old regionalism ( in both Europe and the developing world), new regionalism, and the current phase of  regionalism, referred to as comparative regionalism
  • to provide an overview the most important schools of  thought in the field  in terms of theoretical  and conceptual formulations as well an empirical focus
  • to identify the theories that are most useful for studying of regionalism
  • to suggest comparison as a useful point of departure for studding  and theorizing  regionalism
  • to illustrate with the examples of Africa, Asia, Europe Latin America a combination of formal and informal actors and institutions in regions making and unmaking
  • to reveal the many the many types of regions and the many ways of organizing regional space
  • to illustrate the multidimensionality of contemporary regionalism , in particular focusing on security regionalism, economic and development regionalism , environmental  and social regionalism
  • to represent a variety of complex links between civil society and political regions as well as external powers and donor agencies
  • to show the connection between  internal consolidation of regions and their increased impact externally
  • to describe the role of Regions in Global Governance  through a comparative of  security , trade , health , culture  and environment
