Regionalization and Democratic Consolidation

Regionalization and Democratic Consolidation

(p.58) 2 Regionalization and Democratic Consolidation
Democratic Consolidation in Eastern Europe Volume 2: International and Transnational Factors

Iver B. Neumann

Oxford University Press

Presents the relationship between democracy and regionalization in Eastern Europe and discusses the following issues. Firstly, how regionalization in Eastern Europe is connected to the construction of a democratic regional community of states, namely, the European Union; and how regionalization may challenge the present state‐centric political order in Europe. Secondly, to what degree can the global democratic promise—seen in Western European regionalization—also be seen in Eastern European regionalization. The chapter emphasizes that regionalization in Eastern Europe has, so far, been a by‐product of the membership applications to the European Union.

Keywords:   democracy, Eastern Europe, European Union, membership application, regionalization, state, Western Europe
