Cross-border cooperation: A major element in regional policy in the new East Central Europe  [PDF]
Turnock David
Zbornik Matice Srpske za Drustvene Nauke , 2002, DOI: 10.2298/zmsdn0213149t
Abstract: Borders in East Central Europe have become much more permeable over the past ten years as formalities have been simplified and many new crossing points have opened. At the same time, cooperation in border regions has increased, thanks mainly to the EU 'Interreg' programmes, to include a range of business cultural and conservation interests. In many cases these arrangements have been formalized through Euroregions which have become an indicator of good international relations. The paper reviews these trends with reference to examples and pays particular attention to environmental projects and the joint planning initiatives being undertaken in a number of Euroregions. At a time when regional policy has been generally weak, cross-border cooperation has contributed significantly to cohesion and it is also a good indicator of stability in the region. However, the impact has been greater in the north than in the Balkans and the first round of EU eastern enlargement will have implications for cooperation across the new external borders.
Development of Cross-border Cooperation as a Basis of the Intensification of the Regional Enterprises’ Foreign Trade
O. Sushchenko,S. Chasovskуi
Economics of Development , 2010,
Abstract: The main problems of cross-border cooperation are: the significant difference in the level of States Parties’ development, in the pace and scope of administrative transformation, different levels of transport infrastructure, including border,theessential differences in customs and tax legislation, lack of required number of banks willing to make payments and lend the economic trans-enterprises.Luhansk region is located at the crossroads of major transit routes between Europe, the Volga and Caucasus regions. This situation is the basis of geo-economic strategic competitive advantage of the enterprises in region in their foreign economic activities.To develop cross-border cooperation it is reasonable to foresee: joint investment in projects and cross-border cooperation, the establishment of regional cross-border commercial transport network (consignment area), the creation of joint financial-industrial groups, development of modern border infrastructure, improvement of transport infrastructure and the creation of transit corridors in the Luhansk region; construction of two logistics centers in order to introduce modern technology trade and shipping, the introduction of information network database to search for business partners, the organization of cooperation in the regulation of migration and labor markets of the border areas; development of industrial and social infrastructure of border regions, aimed at promoting their economic development and improving quality of life and welfare of citizens; direction of local authorities, local governments at strengthening cross-border cooperation, deepening of the cooperation and effective cooperation between territorial communities of the border regions.
Cross-Border Cooperation in Europe: The Case of Bihor-Hajdu Bihar Euroregion  [cached]
Laura Cismas,Cosmin Sabau
International Business Research , 2012, DOI: 10.5539/ibr.v5n3p91
Abstract: Cross-border cooperation has become, in the recent years, one of the basic pillars of the elimination process of development disparities between regions. The available economic and social datas suggests an important development of the area border especially after 2002, when Hajdu-Bihar and Bihor founded the Bihor-Hajdu Bihar Euroregion. Regional policy has also contributed through several cross-border projects, financed from European funds and for the future there are premises to obtain a dynamic of regional economies in the two areas with increased investments in priority areas (infrastructure, environment business, tourism, education, health, etc.).
The Danube as the factor of physical integration of Serbia and Europe  [PDF]
Velimir ?e?erov
Urbani Izziv , 2004,
Abstract: In Europe the Danube is today a first class natural and integrative measure. Thus it has become the subject of special attention and the topic of numerous plans, studies and analyses. In Serbia the Danube is seen as an opportunity for joining into contemporary European flows. The first step is cross-border cooperation with neighbouring regions in Danubian countries. Development and protection of the river are the basis for integral planning and common activities, which in time has to expand into trans-regional and trans-national cooperation, all leading to integral plans for the entire river course. In view of the fact that a substantial part of the Danube passes through Serbia (588 km), its inclusion in all development processes that lead to progress of the entire national territory is completely logical, whereby European experiences and positive domestic practice should be put to use.
The role of the regions in border dynamics in Europe
Desiderio Fernández Manjón
Revista CIDOB d'Afers Internacionals , 2005,
Abstract: This article analyses the role that the regions have played during this past half century, and which they continue to play now, in the changes that are occurring along the borders between European states and in the webs of interests that are woven as a consequence ofthis evolution. The mapping of borderlines associated with people endowed with singularities is a delicate, complex task, as demonstrated by several paradigmatic examples: the creation of new borders (Flanders) and the profound modification of historical orders (the canton of Jura). The difficulty may lie in approval processes and in the appropriate conjugation of interests of other peoples and minorities existing within them. There are several Europeaninstitutions which are contributing to deeply modifying the imaginary of international borders. On the one hand, the Council of Europe, which fosters, among other things, cross-border cooperation and inter-regional cooperation. Secondly, the European Union institutions havetaken many ideas from the Council of Europe and made them their own: the Committee of the Regions and cross-border cooperation. In addition, these institutions force the unitary states to establish a territorial division taking into account the income levels of the population.

Fedorov M.,Korneevets V.
Baltic Region , 2009, DOI: 10.5922/2079-8555-2009-2-3
Abstract: The article positions trans-border regions that are formed in the course of cooperation between the administrative, territorial and municipal institutions of neighbouring countries or have similar important characteristics, in the hierarchical system of regions. The authors prove trans-border regions to be a type of international regions and consider specific characteristics of these regions using the Baltic region as an example.

Problems of Cross-Border Cooperation Between Poland and the Kaliningrad Oblast of the Russian Federation
Tadeusz Palmowski
Quaestiones Geographicae , 2010, DOI: 10.2478/v10117-010-0033-2
Abstract: Thanks to the opening of Europe to Kaliningrad and Kaliningrad to Europe, this region has been given an opportunity to gradually break the isolation which was the primary reason for its peripheral position. The enlargement of the Schengen Area complicated its relations and weakened cross-border cooperation with Poland. Further cross-border cooperation trends, though facing various barriers, may lead to improving the state of the natural environment in the Polish-Russian transborder region, joint planning of its development, growing mutual contacts, and making the populations living on both sides of the border more familiar with each other. Kaliningrad's future also requires sustainable economic, ecological, social and political development. The working out of new principles of model cooperation between the EU and Russia may significantly stimulate the economy in the Polish-Russian cross-border areas. The mainstream options for opening Kaliningrad to regional cooperation can be an important step towards full integration of Baltic Europe.
Cross-border Cooperation as a Mechanism of Regional Marketing in the Baltic Region  [PDF]
Davidov D.,Chekalina T.
Baltic Region , 2009, DOI: 10.5922/2079-8555-2009-2-6
Abstract: The article offers a pragmatic approach to certain aspects of cross-border regionalisation. The marketing component of Euroregion development and the implementation of cross-border cooperation projects are considered as key directions of the joint activity of cross-border partner-regions. The authors analyse the opportunity to apply the territory brand model to research on the mechanisms of cross-border cooperation and to the elaboration of an efficient development strategy as a promising direction of further study of the cross-border cooperation and regionalisation phenomena.
