Abstract

With the paddle of a new period of programming, the European regional policy must face the challenge of widening in the East like with that of the insertion of Europe in universalization. In this European space where exists a demographic, economic and policy concentration, in an omnipotent center, the regions become capital parts of the reorganization of the economic, social and space bond : the European regional policy is and will remain thus a central stake for the development of this space. This article tries to put forward the bases of this policy and to determine new spaces concerned.
