Explores how Flemish nationalists raise questions about the impact of European integration on the cultural rights of their nation, the members of which have struggled for a century and a half to assert themselves against the political and cultural hegemony of French language interests in Belgium. Discusses why Flemish nationalists perceive threats to their culture from European integration, why they believe this reflects larger problems of sovereignty for weak actors in a centralizing Europe, and how they attempt to formulate responses to these problems. Argues that the Flemish nationalist reaction to European integration is inspired by actual and potential losses of institutional power and constitutional protection for Flemish culture.
