Reconstituting Territory in the EU Multi-Level System: Migration and Cohesion in Croatia, Macedonia, and Slovenia.

Abstract:

This paper explores the export of ‘the European model’ to new and potential member states in South East Europe. Using theoretical insights from the Europeanization literature this paper uses two policy sectors (cohesion, migration) and three countries (Slovenia, Croatia, Macedonia) to explore the EU’s impact on the structures, processes and norms of domestic governance in these three former Yugoslav republics. We hypothesis that (i) cohesion and migration will generate different forms of politics within an EU framework designed to encourage convergence and (ii) as both policy areas entail the reconstitution of territoriality internally and externally then new forms of politics will combine elements of regulation and redistribution in new and complex ways that strain state capacity and capability. These new states had to construct institutions whose capacities, capabilities and norms reflected those required for EU membership and so state building and European integration were two sides of the same coin. Each required the other: the creation of sovereign states with the capability to strike sovereignty deals with the EU. We contend that a relatively ignored aspect of the EU’s transformative and (re) constitutive power, relating to compliance and the transmission of policies and values, is the reconstitution of territory and associated notions of territoriality. Our focus on a redistributive policy type and a regulatory policy type allows exploration of diffusion mechanisms and institutional/organisational processes associated with them and captures important aspects of them which draw from but cannot be straightforwardly condensed into the familiar tropes of Europeanization and multi-level governance.
