Analysis and findings

In general, two analytical building blocks will be applied
in this chapter. In other to provide empirical reasoning and sound scientific
facts supporting the idea that an increased regional economic cooperation will
be beneficial, the project will rely on an institutional comparison between key
mechanisms of the EU and the Pacific Island Forum. First, a quick overview over
the two organisations regional monetary policy will be illustrated. Second,
because of the reports focus on increased public regulation as well as new ways
to create space for market driving governance structures, the comparison will
be classified after this methodology. The result of this analysis will be used
in the coming discussion chapter.
