      [From the Introduction]. In this paper we attempt to explore and apply Europeanization to the regional level in England. We begin with some remarks on what we take Europeanization to be. The way we have approached the concept and its definition is to regard it as fundamentally concerned with the study of change as it affects issues, perceptions, institutions and policies. But distinctively we are dealing with a particular kind or example of change which is evident through what might be termed ‘the EU effect’. That is change that would not have happened or would not have happened in the way it has if it were not for the existence of arrangements and relationships consequent upon the establishment and development of the EU. So a starting point for our analysis is that Europeanization concerns the nature of and the processes whereby this EU effect is manifested. In developing our definition further we start with a formula utilized in an earlier paper adapted from work by Radaelli (2000: 4). In this earlier work Europeanization was defined as: "A set of processes through which the EU political, social and economic dynamics interact with the logic of domestic discourse, identities, political structures, and public policies (Bulmer and Burch 2002: 116)".
