Debate on cohesion policy
On 16-18 March the European Commission, in partnership with the Regional Studies Association (RSA) and the Slovenian Government, organised a conference at Bled in Slovenia on the theme of "What Future for Cohesion Policy? An Academic and Policy Debate". A full set of conference analyses and presentations is available on the RSA website.
The conference offered a platform for exchanges between academics, specialists in regional issues and European Commission representatives. The Commission’s recent proposals – contained in the report on economic, social and territorial cohesion – provided input for the debates.
