Consistency and resilience through cycles of repoliticization

Abstract

Is it theoretically and analytically misleading to analyze regionalism in terms of success or failures? This chapter explores this question by analyzing cycles of politicization in regional political economy. It is argued that despite many crises and setbacks during the last 50 years, Latin American governments have been consistent in their commitment to regional integration and the institutional arrangements have proven to be remarkably resilient. The chapter claims that trajectories of regionalism must be seen as manifestation of a repoliticization of the region that despite stop-and-go dynamics is resilient in the understanding of common interests and a sense of Latin Americanness.
