This paper has been presented at the Fourth International Conference on Nordic and Baltic Studies „Empire-building and Region-building in the Baltic, North and Black Sea Areas”, in Constanta, Romania, May 24-26, 2013.

 

Abstract:

Research on Baltic Sea region building processes emphasizes the discursive elements of the emergence of the region in the beginning of the 1990s, yet lacks the analysis of policy-specific developments of regional integration around the Baltic Sea. My article argues that the neo-functionalist approach opens useful insights in order to understand these developments. Starting from marine environment protection as a nucleus of regional integration, I demonstrate spill-over effects to the field of education policy and higher education co-operation in the Baltic Sea Region. Following this, I analyze why there are no spill-over effects to the adjacent policy area of agriculture up to now.

 

Rezumat:

Cercetările cu privire la procesele de construc?ie regională din arealul Mării Baltice eviden?iază elementele discursive ale apari?iei regiunii la începutul anilor 1990, dar nu analizează evolu?iile politice specifice ale integrării regionale în jurul Mării Baltice. Articolul meu sus?ine că abordarea neo-func?ionalistă deschide perspective utile în scopul de a în?elege aceste evolu?ii. Pornind de la protec?ia mediului marin ca un nucleu de integrare regională, am demonstrat efectele colaterale de cooperare în domeniul educa?iei ?i ale învă?ământului superior în regiunea Mării Baltice. După aceasta, am analizat cauzele pentru care nu există efecte colaterale în zona adiacentă a politicii agricole până în prezent.
