    Subregionalism in the Shadow of ‘Market Power Europe’

    The role of subregional groups in Europe such as the Nordic, Nordic-Baltic cooperation, the Visegrad Group and the Benelux Union has so far received relatively limited scholarly attention. In the beginning of the 1990s a common belief in the scholarly community was that the EU soon would be the only relevant regional organization in Western and Central Europe. The Nordic Council was predicted to lose its relevance when most of the member states would be in the EU. The Visegrad cooperation was according to an analogous way of reasoning viewed as an instrument for the members to prepare for EU and NATO accession that thereafter would lose its raison d'être. Yet, despite these negative predictions there are signs that these subregional forms of integration are becoming increasingly important within and beyond the European Union. The paper utilizes theories of regional integration to analyze the driving forces of subregionalism, and to elaborate on how European subregionalism relates to the dominant form of regionalism in Europe – the European Union. The empirical starting point of the paper is a detailed examination of the cooperation within the Visegrad group.
