Cohesion as overall value and objective of the EU


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. The short study addresses the question which EU policies and initiatives affect economic, social and territorial cohesion in Europe and how the European Committee of the Regions pro-actively can strengthen cohesion as overall value in policy debates.

The study is carried out by Spatial Foresight in cooperation with t33 and ÖIR.
