Yes, it depends on the character of the 'regional institution'.
For example, the UN and the world Bank DO respond to US
imperialist interests because the US has formal veto power
in the Security Council of the former and de facto veto
power in the latter. There are also - this is not conjecture -
institutions in Latin America which are relatively autonomous
and institutions which were created and controlled by the US
Department or State or the CIA. The bottom line is that one
has to take the character of the specific source into question.
