    The Carpathian Euroregion (CE), which was established in 1993, is a cross-border regional cooperation that comprises eighteen regions within five non-EU member states in Eastern Europe. The CE was expected to become a forerunner as an East-East Euroregion. After a decade development, the CE's positive impact on regional security and the development of various kinds of communication can be observed; however, its negative aspects are also reflected, such as the insufficient cross-border governance that results from its formal structural characteristics, its large size, its scarce financial resources, the ambiguity of authority, its historical inheritances, as well as its hypoplastic identity. The CE's economy remains fragmented and considerably backward. As yet, there is no consensus regarding the future image of the CE.
