The Politics of Integration: The Possibilities of de facto Co-nation Sovereignty
This chapter evaluates the influence of the national minority discourse on political integration and considers the possibilities of de facto co-nation sovereignty. The analysis reveals that the politics of integration appears open to democratic articulations, not only from the members of the European Parliament but also from co-nations seeking empowerment through the Committee of the Regions (CoR). The chapter explains that with the right of recourse to the European Court of Justice (ECJ) amounting to de facto recognition of the CoR as an European Union institution, the co-nations who are members of the CoR have indirectly been granted de facto recognition as international political players.
