(p.3) Chapter 1 Approaching the Greater Mekong Subregion
Bounding the Mekong

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter discusses three approaches to the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS): institutional, discursive, and class-based. Each of these has strengths and weaknesses, enabling and constraining the production of certain kinds of analyses, and each has some influence on this volume's analyses of the GMS. None are mutually exclusive of the others, although there are different strains within each family of approaches, some of which are more congenial to strains within other approaches, some less so. Though this study primarily uses a class-based approach, it does not do so to the exclusion of insights from either institutional or discursive analyses. The focus on class here is primarily for the ways such an approach can highlight agency in the production of regions, not because of any prejudice that class is the sole (or even in all cases the primary) force driving regionalization.

Keywords:   Greater Mekong Subregion, institutional, discursive, class based, regionalization, agency
