    Cet article s'intéresse au rôle des Etats dans les processus de rééchelonnement de la gouvernance métropolitaine transfrontalière en Europe. Face à l'émergence de régions métropolitaines transfrontalières, l'objectif vise à mettre en évidence les effets structurants des politiques nationales de soutien aux aires métropolitaines sur les configurations scalaires élaborées par les acteurs locaux et régionaux dans le cadre de leur politique des échelles. Les cas de Bâle, Genève et Luxembourg sont privilégiés dans le cadre d'une approche comparative. La confrontation entre les politiques nationales allemandes, suisses et françaises et les modalités du rééchelonnement de la gouvernance dans les trois régions métropolitaines transfrontalières permet de souligner l'influence significative des cadres nationaux sur les recompositions scalaires. Le rôle structurant des Etats dans ce 'nouveau régionalisme transfrontalier' nécessite toutefois d'être relativisé en fonction des spécificités propres à chaque contexte et des facteurs relatifs aux acteurs en présence.
