The main puzzle tackled by this book is whether and how the European Union’s (EU) interregional policies and historical precedents have enhanced or hampered drivers of regional cooperation in other regions. Thanks to this collective contribution, interregionalism is again considered a key element of the multiplex world. The book offers an ambitious, wide-ranging and up-to-date survey of interregionalism, and it sets the stage for further research into this field, which assumes increasing importance in coping with the challenges of a multipolar world.
