The focus is on the institutional framework of regional integration. We proposed a simple conceptual taxonomy of integration that focuses attention on the scope and coverage of the integration agreement, the regulatory framework that it imposes, the social actors that shape it, and the power relations that underlie it. NAFTA is an example of deficient institutionally. Its institutional framework addresses narrow economic interests and is not conductive to human sustainable development. (MV)
