This paper, to be also published as Working Paper By the Inter-American Development Bank, addresses the issue of the relevance for Latin America and the Caribbean of European experience with the governance of regional integration. It focuses on the global governance of the European Communities (EC) and European Union (EU) in the light of the constitutional process which the EC/EU is undergoing in the present years and of the management deficit in regional integration which has been experienced by the EC/EU, especially in the last two decades. While those contemporary elements are being considered as decisive in order to understand the present stage of integration of Europe, the governance aspects of the developments which have lead from the first experience of the European Coal and Steel Community (ESCS) in 1950-51 between six countries to the present EC/EU of twenty five countries will be given special attention, as they are indispensable in order to understand how the present stage of integration has been achieved.
Keywords: regional integration, governance, Latin America, Caribbean, EU constitutional law
