First-wave theorizing tended to polarize debate between state-centric perspectives and those that more or less wrote states out of the equation. Newer perspectives recognize the complex cocktail of state actors, interstate and global institutions and non-state actors (especially multinational corporations, emerging civil society organizations and NGOs) that have an effect upon regional outcomes. Of course, the balance in importance of these actors varies on a caseto-case basis. Indeed, Hettne and Soderbaum here warn against the danger of trying to find a ‘one size fits all’ explanation.

The forging of a deep continental cultural identity to support political unification may well require an ideology of European cultural exclusiveness. (Smith, 1992: 76) Conclusion Regionalism has been a defender of sovereignty in the past, especially in the Third World. Today, globalization and changing international norms concerning humanitarian intervention are turning regionalism from being a bulwark of sovereignty into a building block of an intrusive world order. New forms of regional identity built around intrusive regionalism could become important stepping stones to a post-Westphalian world order in the twenty-first century.

In the Gulf, however, deviation from the doctrine of non-interference in the post-1990 period (especially in the Qatari case) has led to a weakening of regional order (Barnett and Gause, 1998: 184–5). Intrusive regionalism carried out without a collective purpose and without a set of agreed norms, criteria and modalities of collective action may prove highly destabilizing. Moreover, intrusive regionalism has the potential to fuel inter-regional discord. A case in point is the conflict between ASEAN and the European Union over the former’s policy of ‘constructive engagement’ of Burma.
