      A large majority of studies on differentiation focus their attention on the historical development and/or institutional designs of closer or enhanced cooperation in the EU, neglecting similar developments in other regions, for example, the pathfinder in APEC. In comparing cooperation in the EU with the pathfinder in APEC, this article aims to discover conditions of development of differentiation and its impact on the integration as a whole, and to present a few theoretical insights gained from this comparison. This paper begins with a critical review of the literature on the differentiation development in Europe and Asia. Then, from the framework inspired from liberal intergovernmentalism, the author comparatively analyzes enhanced cooperation in the EU and the pathfinder in APEC, and as a conclusion, evaluate the probable contribution of this analysis to better understanding differentiation and the development of integration theory.
