Cohesion Spirit of EU Policies
Economic, social and territorial cohesion are overall aims and values of the EU. Besides Cohesion Policy also other EU policies and initiatives (must) contribute to the cohesion objective. In an earlier study, we have assessed 15 EU policies according to their ‘Cohesion Spirit’. Following up on this, the current study looks at how the European Committee of the Regions pro-actively can strengthen cohesion as overall value in policy debates. The aim of this study is to strengthen the place based approach, multi-level governance and a strong partnership principle in delivering these EU key policies with an impact on the convergence of regions and Member States.
