  • Noralv Veggeland
Conference paper


There is, without any shadow of doubt, great uncertainty inherent in any current analysis of the effect that European integration before the year 2000 will have on: 1) the size of the European Community, 2) putting the Maastricht Treaty into practice, 3) the fate of the nation state, 4) the role and function of different regions, 5) the regional distribution of settlement and production, 6) the development of infrastructure, and 7) the issue as to whether the development will be ecologically sustainable.
