This Handbook expertly explores the profound transformations in international relations (IR) in recent decades. Proliferating cross-border challenges, including global financial crises, climate change, environmental degradation, irregular migration, and COVID-19, require governance structures that transcend the nation state and take both global and regional interplay, as well as problem-solving capacities, into account. Contributing authors investigate the effectiveness of international cooperation and performance in a diverse range of policy fields.

Offering a comprehensive overview of the latest theoretical and empirical research on the interactions between global and regional governance, this book explicitly takes into account the rise of new powers and the Global South. It seeks to integrate perspectives, ideas and policies from both Western and non-Western societies in order to better explain relationships among multiplying actors in a highly interdependent world.

This cutting-edge Handbook will be an essential read for academics and students of political science, IR, and related disciplines. Professionals in diplomatic, developmental, environmental, trade, and financial fields will also benefit from its accessible evaluation of global and regional governance.
Critical Acclaim
‘This is the most impressive collection of essays on regionalism and global governance that I know. It is distinctive by bringing the work on global governance and different processes of regionalization together instead of juxtaposing them. The editors have done a marvelous job and the volume will remain a reference work for years to come.’
– Michael Zürn, Berlin Social Science Center, Germany

‘Rüland and Carrapatoso have assembled a group of distinguished contributors for this comprehensive survey of regionalism in contemporary global governance. With sections on theorizing regionalism, global institutions, regionalism in most parts of the world, and regional cooperation on trade, finance, climate change, and security, this volume is certain to become the go-to collection for scholars in coming years.’
– John Ravenhill, University of Waterloo, Canada
