As for the next programming period, the cohesion policy – designed ‘to promote economic, social and territorial cohesion among regions and member states’ – is one of the most significant areas of European Union policies, accounting for around a third of its budget. Each Member State is entitled to spend a fixed amount, channelled through different funding mechanisms, pursuing cohesion objectives. The allocation method for the funds is still largely based on GDP per capita, but new criteria are added in 2021-2027 period (youth unemployment, low education level, climate change, and reception and integration of migrants) to better reflect the new challenges and reality. This paper contains the main aspects and elements to the next programming period and future regional policy of the European Union. Also, it compares these proposals with previous periods, presents the main principles guiding and an overview of the future allocation process.
