Briefing published by the European Parliamentary Research Service (EPRS) in January 2018 on the implementation of EU macro-regional strategies.
One of the EU’s main instruments for promoting European territorial cooperation, macro-regional strategies bring together regions from Member States and third countries confronted with a common set of challenges. While each macro-regional strategy differs in terms of the countries involved or the scope of its policies, they all share the same common aim: to ensure a coordinated approach to issues best tackled together.
The European Parliament was due to discuss an own-initiative report on the implementation of macro-regional strategies during its January 2018 plenary session.
