    Niedt C. and Weir M. Property rights, taxpayer rights, and the multiscalar attack on the state: consequences for regionalism in the United States, Regional Studies. Studies of 'new regionalism' often focus on the new actors or goals characteristic of contemporary regional coalitions, at the cost of recognizing how competing social movements might constrain regional policy. This paper considers the recent evolution of the property rights and taxpayer movements in the United States, and how their attacks on state regulatory and tax capacity have affected regional governance. The development and strategic use of 'scalar repertoires' and framing strategies has enabled these movements to take advantage of political opportunities at different scales. Regionalists have been slow to build the versatile scalar repertoires needed to respond to these challenges. [image omitted] Niedt C. et Weir M. Les droits de propriete, les droits des contribuables, et l'attaque contre l'Etat de tous cotes: les consequences pour le regionalisme aux Etats-Unis, Regional Studies. Les etudes a propos du 'nouveau regionalisme' portent souvent sur les nouveaux acteurs ou les buts qui caracterisent des coalitions regionales contemporaines, au prix d'une reconnaissance de la facon dont les mouvements sociaux qui se rivalisent risquent de limiter la politique regionale. Cet article cherche a examiner l'evolution recente des groupes de pression aux Etats-Unis qui soutiennent les droits de propriete et les droits des contribuables, et comment leurs attaques sur la capacite reglementaire et fiscale de l'Etat ont influe sur la gouvernance regionale. Le developpement et l'emploi strategique des 'repertoires scalaires' et des strategies-cadres ont permis a ces mouvements de profiter des possibilites politiques a divers niveaux. Les regionalistes ont tarde a construire les repertoires scalaires polyvalents necessaires pour repondre a ces defis.

Die Rechte von Eigentumern und Steuerzahlern und der multiskalare Angriff auf den Staat: Konsequenzen fur den Regionalismus in den USA, Regional Studies. In vielen Studien uber den 'neuen Regionalismus' liegt der Augenmerk auf den neuen, fur zeitgenossische regionale Koalitionen charakteristischen Akteuren oder Zielen, wobei jedoch verkannt wird, wie sich miteinander konkurrierende Gesellschaftsbewegungen einengend auf die Regionalpolitik auswirken konnen. In diesem Beitrag werden die in letzter Zeit entstandenen Bewegungen fur die Rechte von Eigentumern und Steuerzahlern in den USA untersucht, und es wird die Frage erortert, wie sich aufgrund der Angriffe dieser Bewegungen auf die regulative und fiskale Kapazitat des Staates die regionale Regierungsfuhrung verandert hat. Die Entwicklung und der strategische Einsatz von 'skalaren Repertoires' und Rahmenstrategien haben es diesen Bewegungen ermoglicht, politische Chancen auf verschiedenen Ebenen zu nutzen. Seitens der Regionalisten wurden nur zogerlich die erforderlichen vielseitigen skalaren Repertoires aufgebaut, um diesen Herausforderungen zu begegnen.

Derechos de propiedad, derechos del contribuyente y el ataque multiescalar al Estado: consecuencias para el regionalismo en los Estados Unidos, Regional Studies. Los estudios sobre el 'nuevo regionalismo' se centran muchas veces en los nuevos protagonistas u objetivos caracteristicos de las coaliciones regionales contemporaneas, sin reconocer como pueden los movimientos sociales competitivos limitar la politica regional. En este articulo analizamos la reciente evolucion de los derechos de propiedad y movimientos de los contribuyentes en los Estados Unidos y como sus ataques a las normas y la capacidad impositiva estatales han afectado al gobierno regional. El desarrollo y uso estrategico de los 'repertorios escalares' y las estrategias enmarcadas han permitido que estos movimientos se aprovechen de las oportunidades politicas en diferentes escalas. Los regionalistas han construido muy lentamente los repertorios escalares versatiles necesarios para responder a estos retos.
