Towards a Society of Regions? The Case of Cooperation among the UN, EU, NATO and the AU (African Union) for Peace and Security in Africa

Abstract:

Contemporary global politics has witnessed the reform and strengthening of intergovernmental organizations at the regional and global levels. The increased prominence of regional institutions in addressing key security, economic, and environmental problems has led some globalization scholars to argue about the future role of the state given the proliferation of and cooperation among regional and global institutions. What is ‘missing’ in many of these accounts is the states' role in the emerging relationships that are developing among global and regional organizations. This paper is an analysis of the security cooperation that is developing between the African Union and the UN, EU and NATO. The central questions that drive this paper are: What is the character of the evolving security relationship among the AU, UN, NATO and the EU? What accounts for this relationship? And, how have member states adapted to these changes? Additionally, what are the theoretical implications of the emerging interregional relations for the study of international relations? Drawing on the English School, this paper investigates this important phenomenon and argues that there is an emerging “interregional society of states” in which states will continue to shape the form and the functions of this society.
