    Subnational regions (microregions) and supranational regions (macroregions) appear as disconnected concepts in the academic literature. They are studied by distinct academic communities between which there is very little communication. In this Note, three ways are suggested to ‘connect’ the two phenomena and it is argued that a dialogue between the two communities could open new avenues for research and lead to a better understanding of interpolity and intereconomy relations, in a more general sense. In this
    exploratory Note it is suggested that micro and macroregions can be connected (i) at the conceptual level, (ii) through their similar roles as emerging international actors, and (iii) through the interplay between macroregions and crossborder microregions.
