NEOMA's world

Thematics :

Alongside globalisation, recent years have witnessed an upsurge in the number of regional economic organisations. Growth, free trade, increased innovation, improved competitiveness, monetary stability, the provision of regional public assets… the motivations behind what is known as “regional economic integration” are numerous.

This is the context in which Philippe De Lombaerde, professor in the Economics, Cultures and International Affairs department at NEOMA Business School has co-written a new book “Indicator-Based Monitoring of Regional Economic Integration” *in collaboration with Edgar Saucedo, a professor at Universidad Veracruzana, Mexico.

This book gives the opinions of experts from different regions across the world affected by this phenomenon: the European Union, Eurasia, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), the East African Community (EAC), the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA), the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP) and the Americas. By analysing their varied experiences, the authors have developed indicators to monitor the different policies for regional economic integration.

The book covers technical and governance aspects of using monitoring systems based on indicators of regional economic integration, and highlights best practice in the field. Better monitoring of the integration process provides better support for regional economic integration policies and better informs public debate on the subject, particularly at a time when economic integration is under significant attack in Europe, North America and elsewhere.

The book is fully aligned with the objectives of NEOMA Business School research, which aims to be both rigorous and relevant. Analysing our environment to improve performance, anticipating change, finding solutions for real-life business issues… As they conduct their research our professors endeavour to make an impact on society.
