In recent years, much of the EU’s inter-regional co-operation has been dominated by trade agreements, a trend to European external policy that contrasts sharply with the failure to secure agreement in the WTO trade liberalisation negotiations under the Doha Development Round. Negotiations for a free trade area (FTA) started with the ASEAN group, with the Andean Community, and Central America. These essentially economic inter-regional agreements are supported by a range of bilateral agreements between the EU and individual countries that represent diverse strategic interests – China, India, South Africa, and Brazil rating particularly strong as important partners for the EU.
As the preceding section suggests, a tendency towards free-trade agreements provides a limited basis for region-building, for the creation of a regional political community based on some degree of common governance. The increasing tendency of the EU itself to engage in bilateral trade agreements can also undermine regional integration or at least slow down the process, and even call into question the EU’s own commitment to multilateralism, as evidenced in the latter’s inability or unwillingness to seek progress in the latest negotiations under the WTO’s Doha Development Agenda.
The inter-regional agreements also take different forms, distinguishing between pure interregional co-operation (involving formal regional blocs, such as EU–Mercosur) and hybrid inter- regionalism (co-operation between a formal regional community and a group of countries that do not constitute a formal regional entity). Inter-regional co-operation takes a variety of forms and policy instruments, ranging across aid programmes, regional trade agreements, support for regional integration and more comprehensive regional strategies – sometimes embracing all of these components.
