European integration and the erosion of the nation-state
Ultimately the diversity of social, political and economic interests in the enlarged European Union will lead to an increasing application of techniques of differentiated integration and co-ordination between member states. At the same time, the administrative relations within the western European states will also be revised. This entails processes of territorial and functional decentralization and of decentralization of activities to the market. What will emerge is a still unknown, strongly differentiated administrative structure within and between the European nation-states. Such a structure appears to provide considerable room for innovation and initiatives, but it also raises the question of whether or not the new situation can be reconciled with the requirements of the familiar social constitutional state.
