Debate on multilevel governance and cross-border policy within the European Union

The next meetings of the CEPLI Board and General Assembly will be hosted by the Association of Walloon Provinces and will take place on 8th of July, in Liège, Belgium.

On this occasion, a debate on multilevel governance and cross-border policy within the European Union will be organized.

This debate will also give the chance to participants to make the point on the latest developments in territorial reforms in Europe and the challenges faced by the intermediate local authorities in this context.

All levels of territorial organization have a particular importance in citizens’ lives, being key actors of policies they develop, but also in the wealth of States, due to their assistance to the public investment, jobs creation and territorial cohesion in Europe.

Examples of good practices on cross border cooperation between intermediate local authorities will highlight its central place in EU Cohesion Policy, especially in the light of the new EU programming period 2014-2020 that gives new opportunities to this kind of projects.
