The modern information society is characterized by such a phenomenon as decentralization processes. Such a tendency is connected with many factors of our time, but the interest and interest in the region, a separate territory, and a certain territorial unit are also factors and factors. Regionalism can be considered in two ways: firstly, how the organization of society is objectively determined by historical, economic and other factors, that is, in a theoretical context; secondly, as the evolution of certain territories, as an integral object, it analyzes the process of regional construction of space. Therefore, regionalism is a phenomenon characterized by the intensification of regional interactions, the strengthening of local cooperation institutions, the creation of associations on a regional basis. Most often, researchers define regionalism as a process of conscious expansion and intensification is limited to extraneous interactions between countries related to geographical proximity, the similarity of conditions and forms of life in order to positive effects of group cooperation in various spheres of life. On the one hand, regionalism is associated with integration processes, and on the other, regionalism, as a scientific discipline, was born in response to the inability of the existing theory of integration to explain the processes of cooperation outside Europe
