Модели Экономической Интеграции: Мировой И Постсоветский Опыт
[Models of economic integration - Russian and post-Soviet experience]


  • Libman, Alexander


The search for an optimal model of regional economic integration remains one of the key problems for economic policy and theoretical research. This paper attempts to study the factors of developemnt and comparative efficiency of regional integration model, and takes into account the asymmetry of power in an integration project, as well as the role of non-governmental players in the integration process. The concept developed focuses on both cross-border and internal integration of markets. The empirical part of the paper looks at both cross-regional comparison of integration processes and specifrics of post-Soviet integration - cross-border initiatives, center-region interactions in the post-Soviet states and expansion of business groups.
