dc.description.abstract2 This Issue of the Journal includes a selection of articles around one common subject: the development of integration-related infrastructure. The main focus is placed on South America¿s recent experience in this field but the papers also address other topics -which in spite of going beyond the sub-region¿s reality- are decisively relevant for analyzing the selected subject-matter. Besides the academic interest of the Journal to encourage and disseminate research in this area, the Issue also has motivations that interweave with the region¿s situation and the activities of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) to contribute to a better international insertion of Latin American and Caribbean countries. It is thus advisable to firstly make a brief reference to these aspects and then to the contents of the papers. The expansion of the economic cycle experienced at different degrees of intensity by Latin American and Caribbean countries has unveiled, among other things, the need to increase and modernize infrastructure. To a great extent, the countries¿ competitiveness and their capacity to insert themselves into international value chains is based on an efficient infrastructure. This becomes an essential ingredient for sustaining growth in economies open to the flow of goods, services and capital. Integration-related infrastructure is made up of a diverse range of different projects which favour and improve physical interconnection between countries, whether they share national borders or not. This type of projects require different forms of cooperation involving two or more countries, a process that would turn into "regional public goods" for the benefit of participants once they are successfully completed. The articles summarized in this Issue can be read by using either an analytical or applied approach, as explorations of the many dimensions related to cooperation for infrastructure aimed at physical integration.
