" The nation states have ended to be the exclusive actors in world politics. A growing number of transnationally operating non-state actors join in as well - among them not the least local authorities. But, do these actors in low politics have an impact on high politics and in what respect? The book includes academic analyses of the transnational involvement of municipalities and of its political outcome as well as reports from practicians in the field. A special focus is on whether and how cross-border co-operation of local authorities contributes to peace and security as well as to transnational integration and region building. As regards geography, the Baltic Sea Region provides the main example to most of the articles. The 23 contributors are scholars or municipal representatives from nine countries. The editor is Deputy Director of the Schleswig-Holstein Institute for Peace Research - SCHIFF/SHIP. (Dr. Christian Wellmann ist im Arbeitsbereich Friedens- und Konfliktforschung des Instituts f?r Sozialwissenschaften der Universit t Kiel t tig.) "
