Despite the mantra of the ‘three No’s’, EU macro-regional strategies do have a significant impact on existing institutions, legislations and funding schemes.

Leggewie, 2012) Hence, Leggewie suggests using macro-regions as transnational building blocks for fostering citizens’ participation if not democracy in the EU – an argument that will be critically addressed by Piattoni in this volume (chapter 4). Historically, ‘a Euro-Mediterranean Union, a Baltic Sea Union’ (Leggewie, 2012; see also Frey, 2012) and other cooperative regional blocks – involving the EU, its members and partner countries – started to emerge after the end of the Cold War and particularly involved those countries in the immediate vicinity that were adamant to become members of the EU (see Dangerfield, chapter 2 in this volume).
