This book answers the following question: Why can t the European Union and MERCOSUR (Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay) sign an association agreement after more than ten years of negotiations? Since 1999 negotiations were conducted between the parties, on political dialogue, trade and cooperation. Through the years events occurred at global, interregional, regional and national levels, which enabled its conclusion. While South American and European negotiators could not solve the gridlocks of the negotiation, China has been dramatically increasing trade relations with MERCOSUR. This situation is addressed here with special attention. At present, MERCOSUR is becoming a very attractive region to extrarregional powers. These countries are endowed with agriculture, energy and natural resources. Brazil is a case in point, as it positions itself as one of the most important emergent powers.
Should a nation concentrate on its own unemployment problems when designing strategies to tackle it? One level deeper, should a region do so too? Two main questions of this thesis are whether regional unemployment in Europe is spatially dependent and whether it is of equilibrium or disequilibrium nature. These questions are attempted to be answered through a dynamic spatial panel data model incorporating a spatial lag as well as a spatial error term, looking at a data set including 258 European regions ranging from 2003 to 2009. The results highly suggest interregional cooperation designing unemployment policies, disregarding national borders in Europe. Furthermore, the spatial decay appears to be relatively slow, highlighting non-negligible spillover effects. Lastly, regions with low shares of employees with tertiary education performed significantly worse than others.
China's dynamic economic growth and the successful reforms significantly affected the self-esteem of the Chinese nation and its leadership. Beijing gradually has changed the very quality of its foreign policy and become more confident and purposeful. China safely gets out of the shadows, successfully contrasting Chinese Peaceful Rise or Development concepts to the China's threat theory, intensively promoting soft power policy and using public diplomacy. Moreover, Beijing offers the World its own initiatives or concepts like - Chinese Dream or Great Dream, Community of Common destiny, as well as the initiative of New Great Silk Road (NGSR) - "the Silk Road Economic Belt" and "the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road." The China's President Xi Jinping's NGSR is not only a mega-project designed to deepen Eurasian regional and interregional cooperation, it supports the ideas of building a "community with common destiny" and accepting "greater responsibility" that international community expects Beijing to take up. Chinese Dream may become an ideological basis to propose NGSR initiative that in its turn designed to contribute to the proliferation of the Chinese Dream in China and beyond.
The Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) is one of the earliest forums that put substance into the idea of cooperation between several regional organizations. Among the three core regions in the world: Europe, North America and East Asia, interregional arrangements have been developed in various forms. ASEM emerged in 1996, with an aim to strengthen the missing link in the triadic interregional relationship. ASEM s success in initiating dialogue and cooperation between Asia and EU in economic, political and social dimensions, reflected in a plethora of meetings, conferences, seminars and activities, has created its own challenges and expectations. The success of ASEM depends on both functional and cognitive changes in both regions. ASEM progress has been made in economic cooperation. In contrast, political and security dialogues have confirmed the different positions of members, though the Seoul meeting (2000), opened the potential for interregional political cooperation. Asymmetric progress between the two parties in regional integration shows that cognitive change cannot take place overnight. Therefore, for ASEM to flourish, both interregional and intraregional changes are required.
