Nordic cross-border cooperation - Are experiences transferable to East Central Europe ?

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The Nordic cross-border cooperation has long traditions, and do mostly stem from below. Different voluntary associations did take the first step to cooperate and make the cross-border cooperation work. Today nine organisations are funded partly from the Nordic Council of Ministers, aiming at eliminating the negative of the national borders dividing the Nordic areas into eight countries and territories, and at developing the cross-border regions. The Nordic cross-border programme regions differ widely from one another and are faced with very different cross-border obstacles and challenges. There are essentially two types of cross-border regions : we find examples of small, compact and relatively densely populated regions and of large geographical regions that are rather thinly populated. - (BJ)
