Claudia Wiesner: Re-Scaling Nationhood and the European Union in France and Germany, pp. 103-127

European integration is a regional integration process that has united formerly inde­pendent nation states into a federation-like polity. Accordingly, EU integration and its evolving supranational structures have challenged the conceptions of nationhood in most EU member states, as they have directly touched upon some of its classic markers, such as sovereignty and territory. In terms of the “scaling” approach, the integration processes have led to a re-scaling of the concept of nation in individual member states.
