The Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) From the Perspective of International Relations (IR) Theories
Integration mainly means intergovernmental cooperation through international organizations and treaties ( Vinokurov & Libman, 2014 , p. 355). It makes sense to view integration as a process. This process starts with increasing cooperation between the states. It continues with a gradual transfer of authority to supranational institutions, a gradual homogenization of values; and the emergence of new forms of political community. The final destination is the emergence of a federation composed of states in the region ( Roach, Griffiths & O'Callaghan, 2014 AU22: The citation "Roach, Griffiths & O'Callaghan, 2014" matches the reference "Roach et al, 2014", but an accent or apostrophe is different. , p. 170).
