Monitoring Regional Integration and Cooperation in the Andean Region 25 is relatively difficult to monitor. Such statements tend to be purposefully blurry and loosely defined, and its outcomes are very hard to quantify. However, there are arguably other institutions, both national and international, that have done a good job in monitoring subjects such as human rights and democracy. Sector policy harmonization and sector cooperation, which are becoming more common as regional integration agreements move beyond trade mechanisms, poses the major challenges for monitoring and enforcement purposes.

As the international agreements have become more complex, there is no indication that public agencies have evolved to integrate other integration fields in their monitoring activities. Moreover, the international treaties have not evolved either – the institutional arrangements for monitoring purposes of the CAN-Mercosur, ATPs and G-3 treaties are similar. e. survive the shock of Venezuela’s withdrawal and overcome the political disputes among members. In general, political and economic stability in the region, a renewed interest in regional integration, and a minimum consensus on sector policies, are all conditions to make the process move forward and reinforce the incentives to monitor it.

The Andean Parliament has among its functions ‘to inspect the progress of the integration process and the accomplishment of its objectives’. In order to do so, the AP has established a mechanism called the Andean Observatory for Integration (AOI) in which members of the Parliament join government officials at the vice-ministerial level to assess the progress made in different areas of the integration process. The conclusions of such hearings are published in a report after each meeting of the AOI.
