The European political landscape is one of constant flux and it is
this alternating integration and disintegration which influences
the basic conditions in which political power is exercised. This
book argues that the interests of the cities and regions of Europe
are increasingly influenced by European supranational institutions
rather than the nation state and that governance in Europe is
shifting to a regional and local level. This shift of influence
implies potential for economic development and new political
strategies, but also poses a serious threat to national identity
and the traditional sovereignty of the state. Focusing on processes
of internationalisation and regionalisation, the book discerns
fascinating peculiarities in the Nordic response to a radically
changing environment. The authors take a comparative approach to
four Nordic countries and examine the efforts involved at local and
regional level to safeguard interests. Their analysis and
conclusions make fascinating reading for students and scholars of
government and public policy and for civil servants and
policymakers across Europe.
