Will the European Union survive the global economic crisis? Will the Arab Spring trigger new forms of regional cooperation in North Africa? Will Asian regionalism prevail? This bookinvestigates the intimate relationship between regional governance processes and global crises. Starting with a thorough analysis of the so-called 'Eurocrisis' and its impact on the European Union, the contributors look at how regional cooperation and integration in the Arab world, Africa, Asia and Latin America has been improved or challenged by local and global crises. Through a selection of topical studies dealing with economic, humanitarian and democratic crises,they discuss the future evolutions of regional governance and calls for a new paradigm to put 'citizens' at the centre of regionalism.
