Perhaps encouraged by the increasingly rational ordering of space in Renaissance maps, the theatre of state appeared to these thinkers as an increasingly distinct sphere, with a logic of its own. At this time, state-structures were developed in Spain and Portugal to also govern colonies in America and, soon, in England, France, Sweden and elsewhere. The Peace of Westphalia (1648) that ended the Thirty Years War in Europe is often cited as the beginning of modern inter-state relations. It introduced or consolidated a number of new notions from freedom of religion to state sovereignty and great powerness.

Rather, local and national struggles are essentially connected to regional and global struggles, and therefore they cannot be taken as separate spheres (‘first progressivism at home, and then exportation of these universalist ideals to the rest of the world’). Along these lines, I discuss two programmatic visions that should take the Nordics beyond ‘Nordic nostalgia’, and provide inspiration and hope for others. The Europeanist strategy is based on a new positive understanding of the ‘logic of stateness vis-à-vis the free play of market forces’ (Hettne 1993), this time articulated as the ‘pursuit of regionness’.
