In 1996 the Center for Iberian and Latin American Studies (CILAS) and the Graduate School of International Relations and Pacific Studies (IR/PS) launched a two-year program on “Latin America and the Pacific Rim” at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). Its aim is to promote understanding of the increasingly significant relationship between Asia and Latin America, especially in light of the relatively scant scholarly attention which has been devoted to this subject.
This working paper reproduces the essence of the conference discussions on "Regional Integration in the Americas and the Pacific Rim" held at UCSD on February 28-March 1, 1997 and special presentations on processes of regional integration prepared for the Visiting Fellows. The working contains three broad sections -- one on interactions between Asia and Latin America, another on comparisons between the two regions, and a third on the relationship between regionalism and globalism.
