Show Summary Details


This book sets out to deepen the understanding of processes of comparative regional governance by investigating two historic regions (Wales and Brittany) in two neighbouring European Union states. The framework for analysis combines criteria drawn from institutions (and political opportunity structures), relationships, identities and regulation. This chapter presents a set of concluding evaluative judgements about regional governance in Wales and Brittany, in an attempt to draw out some more general conclusions about regional political capacity.

Keywords: regional governance; Wales; Brittany; regional political capacity; political opportunity structures; European Union
