The conclusions carry this study forward into analyzing the prospects of regional transnationalism in the isthmus under the growing impact of globalizing processes in the region. It suggests the need to consolidate coordination in economic domains but also to make interstate institutions accountable and relevant to rank-and-file citizens, reinvigorating public trust and social participation, crucial components of institutional success. These final pages “shift gears” from analysis into discussing the prospects of regional transnationalism under the growing impact of globalizing processes in the region, suggesting the need to consolidate interstate coordination in various domains, but also to make regional institutions accountable and relevant to rank-and-file citizens, reinvigorating public trust, a crucial component of both citizen participation and institutional success on a transnational level. We need to look at these issues from the perspective of economic trends as well as sociologically, politically, and culturally.

Keywords: regional transnationalism; isthmus; economic domains; interstate institutions; globalizing processes
