32 Much of what is done in terms of cross-border and inter-regional co-operation is therefore essentially symbolic in nature. Regional governments rarely have the tools, or the same tools, to enter meaningfully into making public policy jointly. All this is only the beginning of a process which will require frequent rethinking, but which does open promising opportunities for most European regions. With the gradual expansion of regional powers within states, and with the frequent meeting of regional decisionmakers in the European arena – first in the Assembly of European Regions and now also in the Committee of the Regions – there can be little doubt the future has in store more sophisticated co-operation, as well as more sustained competition between regions.

22 A region among regions Once the dam of electoral isolation broke in the 1970s and 1980s, regionalist parties quickly gained representation at the centre on the basis of their previous symbolic, moral and discursive advances outside the parliamentary arena. From then on the major dilemma they faced was whether they ought to co-operate with parties committed to the continuity of the territorial arrangements of the state, or whether they ought to maintain a policy of principled opposition. 6 Thus we can see how regionalist parties, while continuing a discourse hostile to the centre, frequently co-operate with regional or national governments.
