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. However, Community-level regional policy did not exist at this point in time; only indirect regulations were introduced. The Spaak report is, amongst others, the reason for this, which anticipates territorial disparities to even out through economic growth, and on the basis of which the member states of the Community prioritised the abolition of restrictions on trade and the establishment of a.
