The Nordic Regions and the European Union is an authoritative book on the influences of European integration on the regional level in the Nordic countries. It provides both factual insight into the Nordic regions and the Europeanization of the four Nordic countries, offering theoretical contributions to the theory of regionalism in a European context built on systematic comparison. Organized into two parts, the first part provides a comparative analysis of the extent to which the regional level of governance has been influenced by the increasing importance of European integration across a range of policy areas. Part two presents in-depth studies of key aspects of the process of Europeanization in the Nordic regions, including cross-border co-operation, regional lobby activities in Brussels and regional policy as a field of activity in which multi-level governance has become particularly prominent.
