About this book

Drawing on macro-regional governance and Europeanization, this edited volume provides an overview of processes of macro-regionalization in Europe displaying evidence of their significant impact.

Reviews

“This book clarifies the differences between these terms and their underlying concepts, and focuses in particular on ‘macro-regionalisation’, its empirical reality as well as its theoretical understanding. … The book makes an empirically important as well as theoretically insightful contribution to the (cross-disciplinary) study of regional dynamics in Europe.” (Gabriele Abels, Europe-Asia Studies, Vol. 69 (3), May, 2017)
