Abstract

This paper investigates the emergent role of environmental non-governmental actors in regional environmental governance. The Baltic Sea Region (BSR) is taken as an example where changes in environmental governance and where several different international regimes and transnational policy emerged. The paper analyses transnationalization, Europeanization tendencies and largely fragmented existing governance structure. However, one sociological issue has been rarely analysed in these discussions. The question of identity as the main driver for regional governance to move forward will be touched on at the end of this paper.
