The reform of Cohesion policy is a complex process within the complex polity of the European Union. Understanding how it takes place requires insight into the interplay between different institutions at EU, national and sub-national levels as well as formal and informal alliances and networks of countries, regions and interest groups. This chapter examines the way that institutions play a role in determining the financial allocations and regulations of Cohesion policy, and discusses the recalibration of inter-institutional relationships in the latest reform with important implications for the design of Cohesion policy.
