EU Urban Policy: is its existence justifi ed?


  • Nikola Krejčová


The aim of this paper is to assess the EU Urban Policy existence when it comes to its justifi cation. Th e claim to form and deeply implement the EU Urban Policy has been heard oft en from experts on the fi eld of the urban development. Moreover, during the programme period 2007-2013, there is a signifi cant demand to unify solutions of urban areas development questions across the EU. To be able to assess the EU Urban Policy existence justifi cation, two criteria have been picked out: first, the suitability criterion in the sense of compatibility of urban areas problems and Urban Policy declared goals and, second, the overlaping criterion in relation other EU policies subject matter.
