Chapter Summary

This chapter engages in a comparative discussion of US-led globalization and European bloc imperialism. Its purpose is the highlight the similarities and differences of these two modern forms of imperialism in terms of their modus operandi. EU bloc imperialism has been off of the radar of the modern debate on imperialisms due largely to the fact that it is a fairly recent phenomenon. The objectives of structural adjustment programs and economic partnership agreements reveal the similarities and differences of the imperialist agendas of US-led globalization and European bloc imperialism, respectively. The ERPs and EPAs are imperialist regimes because they both have the same effect on the ACP countries, as did European imperialism in the nineteenth century. The Commission of the European Communities (EC) formulated the global Europe doctrine, which provides the rationale for European bloc imperialism.

Keywords: EPAs; ERPs; European bloc imperialism; global Europe; US-led globalization
