Problem

Erosion of sovereignty

Other Names:
Infringement of national sovereignty
Diminishing power of the state
Nature:

The principle of national sovereignty is eroding because of increased interdependence between nations, regions and continents and because of increased vigour of sub-national regions.

Incidence:

The development of the European Community is creating a super-national entity with increasingly important smaller regions, such as Scotland, Wales, Catalonia, Euzkadi, Flanders, Wallonia, Sicily, Piedmont, Venetia, North Rhine-Westphalia, and Bavaria, which will outlast the 12 nations that make up the Community.
