ABSTRACT
The recent experience of Europe with efforts at integrating -peacefully and voluntarily- previously sovereign national states into a single transnational organization, the European Union, is by far the most significant and far-reaching among all attempts at regionalism. It is, therefore, the most likely to provide some lessons for those world regions that are just beginning this complex and historically unprecedented process. We have only one instrument that can help us to transfer knowledge and lessons from one region to another: theory. Only by capturing the generic concepts, confirmed hypotheses, and observed processes underlying the European experience can we expect to make any contribution to understanding the conditions under which regional "community formation" might succeed elsewhere. After developing and then revising 12 lessons from that European experience, I then suggest a strategy with the potential for promoting regional integration elsewhere in the world.
