    This paper examines the idea of giving regional governments a right to vote in the Council. The first section describes the different forms of subnational mobilization in the 90s. Next, we look at the current situation: how did the idea of split-vote emerge and how is this related to the debates in the Convention? In the next section, the legitimacy of a regional right to vote in the Council is examined. In the following two sections we examine two different ways of granting regional governments a tight to vote in the Council. First, we look at the consequences of a regional "full-vote" (treating regions as if they were member states). Second, we look at the consequences of a regional split-vote.
