Regions have increasingly broke ground in the European sphere. For
decades, they have been subject to forces both influencing them from above
(regionalisation) as well as from below (regionalism). In the European
Union, the regions and their actors have mainly manifested themselves via
EU Regional Policy.

Besides a closer look at the rationales behind this trend (see e.g.
multi-level governance) and the brought along changes in the
decision-making process, three case regions have thoroughly been addressed
– Latvia, Scotland and Saxony. This book highlights pitfalls,
possibilities and the position of regions and its actors in both the
domestic and the European setting in a clear and structured way.
