    Abstract The resurrection and redefinition of regionalism are among the dominating trends in today’s international studies. Regionalism has been brought back in to the academic as well as the policy debates after some decades of neglect. Notwithstanding the hegemony of globalization and resultant anti-globalization, regionalism constitutes a set of middle-level adjuncts or alternatives in policy and practice as well as analysis. This is especially so in the post-bipolar world of the 1990s, now reinforced by the challenges to both assumptions and action constituted by the September 11 syndrome. New regionalism — a range of formal/informal mid-level ‘triangular’ relations among not only states but also non-state actors, notably civil societies and private companies — is a central aspect of the ‘new’ inter- or transnational relations.
