Gruppo Europeo di Cooperazione Territoriale (GECT). Prove di coesione territoriale


  • Gianluca Spinaci


European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation (EGTC). Experimenting territorial cohesion - Mid-2006, the European Union adopts the Regulation establishing the European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation (EGTC), new legal instrument supporting the cooperation between different levels of territorial government across the borders. The paper presents some early findings on the application of the Regulation, in the hopeful wait for the ratification of the Lisbon Treaty, which would endow the Union with the new objective of territorial, in addition to economic and social, cohesion. The analysis focuses on those EGTCs already established and those which are close to be, striving to identify their potential added value in terms of enhanced cohesion and multilevel governance for an European territorial policy still in fieri. Parole chiave: coesione, territorio, cooperazione, governance, GECT. Keywords: cohesion, territory, cooperation, governance, EGTC.
