The governance framework allows for theorizing “beyond the state” and for including different kinds of actors and different—non-hierarchical—modes of steering and policy-making. It is well suited to conceptualize regional orders as integrating both state-led regionalism and society- or market-driven regionalization. Fifth, the Handbook intends to broaden the perspective on comparative regionalism by establishing that there is more to it than trade and security. While the end of the Cold War saw an explosive proliferation of preferential trade agreements, established forms of economic or security regionalism have taken on new functions (Börzel, 2013).

We demonstrate in this Handbook that such inter-regional comparisons yield new insights into the emergence, institutional design, and effectiveness of regionalism by highlighting both similarities and differences of regions (see Parts III and IV of this Handbook). However, rather than treating regions as “containers,” which exist in splendid isolation of each other, we seek to do justice to mutual entanglements and diffusion processes between regions (see Chapter 5 by Risse and Chapter 26 by Ribeiro Hoffmann, this volume).
