The aim of this article is to propose an analytical framework of the EU as a laboratory of paradiplomacy in context of international and domestic determinants of the regions’ foreign activities. The article shades some light on the definitions of paradyplomacy, which allow to understand the ambiguity of the status of regions in international relations. Firstly, the dimensions and types of paradiplomacy are identified. Secondly, the discourse concerning international and domestic determinants of international engagement of regional governments is identified. Then, the framework of the EU as a laboratory of paradiplomacy is explained in the three subsequent parts. Firstly, the EU is referred to as an intermestic determinant of paradiplomacy, what results from the specific nature of the EU that corresponds with the international and domestic determinants of paradiplomacy in general. Secondly, the EU is addressed as an arena of paradiplomacy where various patterns of regional governments’ presence in Brussels are tested. Finally, paradiplomacy in the EU is addressed as a scholarly challenge for the further research.

Celem artykułu jest zaproponowanie podejścia postrzegającego UE jako laboratorium paradyplomacji w kontekście międzynarodowych i wewnętrznych uwarunkowań aktywności zagranicznej regionów. Artykuł otwierają rozważania definicyjne, które pozwalają zrozumieć niejednoznaczność statusu regionów w stosunkach międzynarodowych. Następnie przywołane zostały wymiary i typy paradyplomacji. W dalszej kolejności, identyfikowane są międzynarodowe i wewnętrzne uwarunkowania międzynarodowego zaangażowania regionów. Podejście postrzegające UE jako laboratorium paradyplomacji wyjaśniono w trzech kolejnych częściach. W pierwszej, integracja europejska jest traktowana jako międzynarodowo-narodowa (intermestic) determinanta paradyplomacji, co wynika ze specyfiki UE, która odpowiada międzynarodowym i krajowym determinantom paradyplomacji w ogóle. W drugiej, UE jest postrzegana jako arena paradyplomacji, w której testowane są różne formy obecności władz regionalnych w Brukseli. W trzeciej, paradyplomacja w UE odniesiona została do kluczowych podejść teoretycznych, które podejmują jej temat w kontekście badawczych ambicji jej teoretycznego uregulowania.
