About this book

This book examines what role regions play in European (dis)integration and European identity building. Filling a glaring gap in our understanding of regions, the book considers what the scope and objectives of these regions’ respective European policies and programmes are, how diverse they are and, in a time of mixed signals of European cynicism and identity, how European identity is perceived, fostered and even promoted in regions’ European policies. In doing so, the book presents empirical findings on four EU regions as case studies, including Germany’s Brandenburg; Belgium’s Wallonia; France’s Nord-Pas de Calais; and last but certainly in the current context of Brexit not least, the South West of England.
