FIVE TRENDS ON REGIONALISATION (AER – Brussels 1st Dec)
1. Regionalisation as a “European reform”
2. An ideal model for federalism?
3. “A step back and a step forward”
4.When independence knocks on the door
5. when Regionalisation is “business-as-usual”
The Observatory on Regionalisation is a network of some 40 experts, from Academy and research centres throughout Europe, passionate about the state of regions in their respective countries, independent from the AER and contributing on a voluntary basis to publish this comprehensive study and overview of the State of Regions in Europe.
A preparatory meeting was held in the morning with a group of experts to discuss further initiatives on dissemination, on research and funding
