Abstract [en]

This article examines and discusses how different theoretical perspectives from historical political economy may contribute to the understanding of why the regionalization attempt in northern Sweden has failed. Since cohesion and adaptation at the intermediate level of government has been a crucial factor behind successful regionalization in Sweden, the article focuses on the county council in Västernorrland. It is argued that the long-standing political differences and disputes between agents from different geographical areas within the county council in Västernorrland was one of the most important causes behind the failed regionalization attempt. In order to elucidate these disputes and thereby to increase the understanding of the failed regionalization process, this article deals with three different theoretical perspectives, which complement and interface with each other. The first perspective focuses on voters and elections and is broadly based on the rational choice political theory. The second perspective deals with the role of the bureaucracy and introduces theories related to governance and control. Finally, the third perspective discusses the role of historical institutions such as spatial policy.
