Example text

174 of the Treaty on the EU stipulates: In order to promote its overall harmonious development, the Union shall develop and pursue its actions leading to the strengthening of its economic, social and territorial cohesion. In particular, the Union shall aim at reducing disparities between the levels of development of the various regions and the backwardness of the least favoured regions. This objective requires the mainstreaming of the territorial dimension in future EU policymaking and implementation.

This chapter provides a survey of the various subregional groupings operating in and around the EU when the EU’s ‘macro-regional region project’ took shape. As well as examining the main roles and limitations of these subregional groupings, this chapter also identifies some key distinctions between them. Dangerfield argues that these differences are important because they can be used to explain the differing extents to which such subregional groupings contribute towards the agenda of macro-regional strategies.

Irene McMaster and Arno van der Zwet review in chapter 3 the role of EU macro-regional strategies as an instrument of EU cohesion policy, as well as their design and implementation to date, and the theoretical and policy issues surrounding their use. They argue that, in theory, these strategies represent a new MLG instrument providing an opportunity for new thinking about spaces, opportunities, challenges and forms of intervention. However, McMaster and van der Zwet explain how in practice there have been difficulties in reconciling the different visions and interests of stakeholders, and the breadth of strategic objectives and priorities in relation to the available resources.
