Description In the framework of the territorial dimension of EU cohesion policy, the European Commission has been offering the establishment of functional regions. The response at the member state level has been very diverse, though. Whereas some states have established ‘new regions’, others have been reluctant to do so. The article argues that states and/or regions may veto the Europeanization process on the grounds of protecting their territoriality. More specifically, it avers that the more money is allocated in the member state and the less the cities are dominated by the regions, the higher the chance of differential empowerment of cities.
