Le integrazioni regionali dell’America latina: fra “pre-teorie” dell’integrazione, filosofie costituzionali europee e universalismo costituzionale latino


The article examines the characteristics of “multilevel regionalism” in Latin America and its differences in comparison with the processes of European integration. The comparison between the two experiences highlights a paradox. On the one hand, the Latin American integration seems to imitate theories and processes developed in Europe. In this perspective, the supranational institutions in Latin America seem to be based on praesumptio similitudinis between all processes of supra-nationalism. On the other hand, the comparison shows that this institutional and functional similarity does not exist. In fact, in Latin America prevails a logic “Pick and Choose” in the construction of supra-nationality. Consequently, latin american “multilevel regionalism” operates inconsistently and with many weaknesses.
