Cohesion Policy and Europeanisation

Marcin Dabrowski, Paolo R. Graziano

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceedings/Edited volumeChapterScientific


The aim of this chapter is threefold. First, it aims at taking stock of the different strands of research analysing European Union (EU) Cohesion policy through the lens of Europeanisation as an analytical tool. Second, it endeavours to offer a critical overview of what this body of research tells us about the substance of EU Cohesion policy, its influence and spillover effects on the domestic regional policies, administrative systems and governance patterns in various EU countries. Third, the chapter addresses the remaining gaps in our knowledge on Europeanisation in the field of regional policy and suggests avenues for future research on the topic.
