Liverpool University Press

Should we systematically see a connection between movement and a general weakening of the position of the nation-state? Should we be thinking in terms of a further consequence of European regional integration? To what extent is this a case of a new social construction of places in the Balkan region or the Mediterranean? Answers to these questions can be found in this chapter showing the creation of the phenomena of convergence and standardisation of lifestyles, which paradoxically fosters a discourse of identification that makes these small groups stand out. In this chapter, Pierre Sintès explores the territorial impact of the transformation in the ways of inhabiting place, the mobilisation of memory and the scales of globalisation in the Balkans.

Keywords:   European regional integration, Nation-state, Balkan region, Mediterranean, Standardisation of lifestyles, Mobilisation of memory, Globalisation
