Course Description: In the 'world of regions', we observe various types of regional integration: supranational, transnational, and just international cooperation beyond/across/among nation-states. We also observe the 'absence of war' among nations, but we observe 'peace (only) in parts'. Regional integration theory has developed since the 1950s as the significant development of International Relations theory: Ernst Haas pioneered the Neo-Functionalist concept of supra-nationalism, and Karl W. Deutsch the concept of security community. The theoretical development often follows the practical development of European integration. The early attempts to compare European integration with other regional projects were supposed to fail in the 1970s, but the theoretical attempts of comparative regional integration have revived since the 1990s. There exists the huge literature on Asian regionalism/s. With the recent institutional development of functional cooperation among Japan, China and South Korea, it is theoretically possible for us to argue for North East Asian integration (although the territory and the history/memory matter in this region). This course studies European integration both in theory and in practice, and compares the historic developments of European integration with (North East) Asian reality. Assessment: exam, papers, participation.
