Abstract [en]

Why has the regional issue become important in Sweden, a unitary state with strong central and local levels? This question is analysed with help of three explanatory theses: Europeanization, intra-national driving forces and regional mobilization from below. The argument is that underlying intranational forces of decentralization and regional complexity motivates a stronger regional level, but that Europeanization often triggers off processes— of regionalization. The regional mobilization from below stems from urban economic modernization: Relatively economically independent regions close to the central Europe and with a relatively Europeanized mentality regionalize to a larger extent (Skåne and West Götaland) than regions neither relatively economically independent nor having a Europeanized mentality.
