Book: European Territorial Cooperation

August 8, 2018

A new book is out, edited by Eduardo Medeiros, with contributions from CEU Center for Policy Studies colleagues Sara Svensson and Peter Balogh.

European territorial cooperation is an important objective of European Union regional policy. This new book offers a multifaceted account of how this is pursued through cross-border, inter-regional and regional transnational cooperation. Since much of the literature on European territorial cooperation has been published in specialized academic journals, this book specifically targets practitioners and policymakers. A chapter on how borders act as barriers for further integration is written by Peter Balogh, former research fellow at CPS, and CPS Research Fellow Sara Svensson. The chapter contains policy recommendations to practitioners seeking to conduct systematic policy work to remove border obstacles hindering territorial cohesion and regional development.
