The paper summarises the findings of this special issue and suggests
avenues for future research. It concludes that the Eurasian regionalisms’
development in the 2010s was influenced, among other factors,
by Russia’s concerns about external threats and by its control over
the Eurasian space. However, the design of the regional institutions
does not make them incompatible with global governance. The
cooperation between global and regional institutions varies depending
on the agenda of the specific regional organisation. In addition to
direct competition between global and regional institutions, there
may be an indirect one through offering access to different forms of
economic benefits. Through this indirect strategy, regional institutions
may reduce the incentives for individual countries to comply
with their obligations to global institutions. This paper also places
Eurasia within a global context of analysis and considers similar
trends world-wide as well as outlines the agenda for future studies
of global versus regional governance.
