Reconsidering cohesion policy, the contested debate on territorial cohesion

Katja Mirwaldt, Irene McMaster, John Bachtler

Research output: Working paper

Abstract

The incorporation of territorial cohesion as a regional policy objective has focused
attention on the potential role of territorial cooperation in pursuing this goal. However, the broad agreement on the positive effects of territorial cooperation is not always matched by the same enthusiasm when funds are being allocated. The concrete impact of territorial cooperation is often difficult to identify. At the same time, in terms of the qualitative impacts of territorial cooperation, the added value of INTERREG for territorial cohesion is difficult to dispute.
