Intercontinental Cooperation Dialogue EAEU – Latin America and the Caribbean Monitoring of Integration Processes Indexes of integration

The Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) jointly with the Latin American and Caribbean Economic System  (SELA), and Latin American Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences (ILA RAS) organize an international round table discussion (conference) devoted to the monitoring aspects of the regional integration processes development. 

Regional integration developments as well as global search for the additional economic driving forces of the regional blocs’ strategic sustainable development makes integration monitoring a compulsory exercise to identify
“narrow” aspects of countries integration cooperation. 

Today there are several methodological approaches applied for integration processes monitoring, such as in the European Union, ASEAN, and Latin American and the Caribbean countries.

The Eurasian Economic Commission has elaborated its own methodology applicable for the EAEU Member States including other regional integration blocs and organizations which comprises the best practices worldwide in this area.

In particular, the EEC methodology allows identifying common features of the integration development globally and also identifies a set of special indexes of regional integration to assess the level of integration cooperation for regional blocs and organizations of the modern world.

Unification of existing approaches for integration processes monitoring, building linkages between indexes of integration and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and inclusive development parameters form the basement of the EAEU cooperation with other regional international organizations and integration associations.

Principal purpose of the event
is to discuss existing evaluation practices of the integration cooperation among countries with the help of methodological approaches and integration indexes applied against leading regional integration blocks.
