Working Paper No. 73. 'A Pariah in Our Midst': regional organisations and the problematic of Western-designated pariah regimes - the cases of SADC/Zimbabwe and ASEAN/Myanmar

Abstract

How do regional organisations handle the problem of Western-designated 'pariah' states? It is often assumed that regional organisations are best placed to intervene due to their proximity, local knowledge and interlocking interests with the 'pariah' state. This paper examines the role they can play in interpreting liberal norms as sources of regime legitimacy and in mediating with multilateral institutions.
