GRANATO, Leonardo  y  REBOUCAS, Ian. State, autonomy and regional integration in Latin America. Latinoamérica [online]. 2018, n.66, pp.261-285. ISSN 2448-6914.

In this paper, we aim to build an expanded concept of state autonomy in order to understand regional integration as a fundamental tool for overcoming underdevelopment and dependence on Latin American states. With this aim, we conceive the state as a social regulator of the internal scope and as belonging to an international hierarchical system, and therefore, conditioned by the position it occupies in this structure. We apply the approaches discussed in the previous sections to understand what type of intervening state would be most appropriate for the internal development of Latin American states. We construct our extended concept of autonomy, which emanates from the interconnection of the internal and external dimensions defended in this article. We conclude our work by arguing for the relevance of understanding regional integration as an instrument of internal development and non-subordinate insertion of Latin American countries into the international system.
