Show Summary Details


This chapter identifies several conclusions that can be drawn from the present research. This includes the observation that European integration is important for Basque selfgovernment. It then considers a series of research questions that investigate the impact of European integration on patterns of conflict and cooperation between central and Basque authorities and on Basque political power. This chapter stresses that these conclusions do not close the debate on the impact of the EU on Basque politics, but it does identify what is at stake in the changing context of postwar European politics.

Keywords: European integration; Basque selfgovernment; conflict and cooperation; political power; EU; impact; postwar European politics
