Abstract [en]

What do European regions do in order to influence the European Union? How can regions get the best out of the EU? This working paper represents the final stage in the first phase of an ongoing research project aiming at answering these questions by comparing regional actors’ activities towards the European Union.

The project focuses on: (i) exploring and categorising existing regional action among Nordic regional policy-makers, with an emphasis on assessing the attention given to, and the action undertaken by, these policy-makers on EU questions; (ii) evaluating the conceptions and attitudes of regional actors toward existing and future participation in EU-related frameworks in order to, (iii), facilitate the development of an empirically and theoretically informed model for comparing Nordic regional relations with the EU.

In this working paper the conceptual elements that will be used to describe and understand regional action are presented.

The research project is funded by Nordic Council of Ministers as part of the Internationalisation of Regional Development Policies – Needs and Demands in the Nordic Countries research programme and the Centre for Research on Regional Development (Cerut) at Karlstad University.
