Example text

In fact, several of the chapters in this book suggest an answer. From a baseline assumption that European nation-states represent the Westphalian archetype of unified internal authority structures, European integration has 18 Christopher K. Ansell encouraged a form of divided and overlapping authority much more characteristic of the “separation of powers” known in the United States. The chapters by Cain and Sbragia (while pointing out differences as well) bring these similarities to light and suggest some of the potential consequences for European integration.

My own work (Ansell 2000) and Ferrera’s contribution to this book support this view that subnational mobilization is becoming increasingly important. As already pointed out, Tarrow reaches a different conclusion about political change than does Bartolini. First, Tarrow does not predict a disorganization of functional interests at the national level; second, from his political exchange perspective, he regards functional (that is, sectoral) interests as coming to dominate European-level politics.

If borders come to be perceived increasingly as regulatory systemic borders, nothing implies that they should remain the same across different functional regimes. Only cultural identifications and loyalties remain to justify and legitimize the coincidence of different spheres’ regulatory borders. A prevailing view of borders as regulatory systems’ boundaries may raise claims to redefine such borders within or across national lines. Both international and European integration processes progressively affect the coincidence of cultural, economic, and politico-administrative boundaries, which was the fundamental innovation, distinctive trait, and source of legitimacy of the nation-state.
