Globalisation and Regionalisation: Mapping the New Continental Drift

How far have regional organisations in the south been successful in struggling against neoliberal policies initiated in the northern countries, and actively aided by the international financial institutions? How far have they succeeded in establishing an alternative global regime of development? An assessment of these regional formations in Asia, Africa and Latin America is undertaken to find whether they could fulfil the aspirations for an alternative and just globalisation.

An earlier version of this paper was presented at an international conference on Social Policy in a Globalising World: Developing a North-South Dialogue jointly organised by University of Florence and ISA (RC 19), 6-8 September 2007, Florence. I wish to thank Adam Habib for sharing some of his work on Africa, and also Martin Aranguren and Antulio Rosales for sharing their unpublished work and for some very interesting discussions on the ongoing changes in Latin America.
