    Abstract

    BISCOE A. (2001) European integration and the maintenance of regional cultural diversity: symbiosis or symbolism?, Reg. Studies 35, 57-64. This article assesses the tensions resulting from the EU's dual objectives of furthering integration whilst maintaining regional cultural diversity, and reviews the region-related institutional developments, policies and programmes associated with counteracting the cultural homogenizing tendencies of European economic integration for sub-state nations. Utilizing the individual versus group rights debate, the article argues that the nature of European economic integration and its emphasis on individual economic freedom largely oVsets EU initiatives linked to maintaining regional cultural diversity. It concludes that the EU's efforts in this field are mainly of symbolic importance, thus further challenging the widespread notion of a symbiotic relationship between the EU and sub-state nations.
