In theory Europes borders aren't optimal. On the other hand redrawing them creates all kind of problems.

As far as Belgium goes, the French part could go to France, the Dutch part to the Netherlands and the few German town to Germany.

In Italy it seems like the South would get even more unstable when the North would get it's own country.

As far as the UK and Spain go, I think it's largely about them treating their minorities better. In both countries the last terror act driven with the intention of secession is a while back.
The internet weakens lanugages like Catalan and Basque. Young people are more likely to not want to align themselves with those languages and instead speak a more global language.

Germany works quite well without any of the Finnish speaking people wanting to secede.

A Belgian acquaintance of mine told me once that the Flemish and the Walloons would have split a long time ago if it were not for the problem of dividing Brussels.

In case of the UK, it seems that the Scots are actually in a more privileged position than the English.
In case of Spain there is an additional (and possibly crucial) issue of Catalan and Basque regions being more economically developed than the rest of Spain. In case of their independence the Spanish government would lose a lot of money in taxes.

As far as I know the minority currently trying to secede has never engaged in terror acts.
