Interstate Institutions and Transnational Involvement

A New Stage?

(p.165) 14 Interstate Institutions and Transnational Involvement
Transnational Politics in Central America

Luis Roniger

University Press of Florida

The proliferation of interstate regional institutions in the late twentieth century is the focus of this chapter. These institutions, launched with only partial success in the 1960s, gained momentum in the 1990s after the successful completion of the peace process initiated in the 1980s. This chapter singles out the major institutional developments while discussing whether such institutions reflect regional identity or contribute to it. In this new stage, institutional steps aiming at coordinated action proliferated and broadened to include dozens of regional institutional mechanisms such as a confederation of public universities, a disaster agency, and a regional transportation council. Such institutional development has been dictated by, among other processes, trends of globalizing economic circuits and the transnationalization of migration, whether of a legal, an informal, or an illicit nature.
